Flash Fiction

Saturday, February 13 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Then learn how a piece of flash fiction can be stretched into a longer work…a short story, or a chapter in your novel. This workshop is for beginners as well as seasoned writers. It will delve into both the structure, and craft, of flash fiction. Poets, essayists, memoirists, fiction, and non-fiction writers will gain from this workshop.
