06/07 Writing Flash Fiction with Lisa Kessler

Date: Saturday, June 7, 2014 Time: 10am to 2pm Number of sessions: 1 -- One Day Class! Members: $45 Nonmembers: $54 Location: Inspirations Gallery, NTC at Liberty Station 2730 Historic Decatur Rd. Barracks 16, Suite 204 San Diego, CA 92106

Flash Fiction gives you the chance to try new techniques and discover your own unique “voice” in fiction writing. We’ll be using short flash fiction exercises to experiment with new writing techniques you may not try on a full novel.  By using shorter works of fiction, you can free your literary inhibitions and by the end of the course, you should be on a strong path toward your own unique “voice.”

If you’ve never written flash fiction, this is the place for you! We’ll be studying the story arc as well as techniques that will help you with crafting chapters of your next page-turner.

This is a very interactive course, with hands-on assignments.
