Exciting new class and instructor!

Using Flash Fiction to Find Your Voice
You often hear discussion about a writer’s “voice”, but how do you discover your own?
During this 4 week class, 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 many hands-on assignments. You will also be able to receive feedback on your work, but you are not required to share if you’re not comfortable.
By the end of the course you should leave with a few polished flash fiction stories, ready for you to start submitting.
