The Flash Fiction workshop will focus on experimentation and practice of flash fiction forms as well as the questions—what is flash fiction, how is its power achieved? During this five-week course students will examine and write stories that fall into five flash fiction categories: flash fiction (1000-1500); sudden flash fiction (750 words); microfiction (100 words); the six-word story; and the final class will be on marketing. There will be reading and writing assignments in and outside of class.
Flash Fiction Workshop. Teens & Adults. All experience levels welcome. Tuesdays, March 5-April 2, 7-8:30 p.m., St. John’s Episcopal Church, 323 Wick Ave. Course fee: $25. Need-based scholarships are available (LitYoungstown@gmail.com). Registration Deadline March 1.
Please bring paper/notebook and pens, or an ipad or laptop to class.
