9I: Essentials of Flash Fiction and Nonfiction
Limited Capacity filling up

Flash fiction and creative non-fiction (narratives under a thousand words) are wildly popular in the internet age, yet often wildly misunderstood. This session will provide a basic overview of the key qualities of excellent flash prose, by reading flash fiction and non-fiction from multiple writers and paying close attention to craft techniques specific to flash. Participants will have an opportunity to craft their own short pieces using some of the techniques, and learn methods for revising their flash. Participants will also learn about publishing options for flash prose and where to submit completed work.
