Flash Fiction with Jenny Pritchett
"Flash fiction is its own genre," says instructor Jenny Pritchett. "It's not just a longer poem, or a shorter story. It has its own cadences, chimes, and resolutions, and you can learn to write it by putting aside your expectations of more familiar forms." In this one-day workshop, you and a close group of students will write and share two stories: one finished story that you bring to class and one that you'll write during class in response to a prompt using models from a selection of published short fiction. The in-class assignment will help you explore the possibilities and parameters of a familiar or, perhaps, a brand-new genre for beginning as well as more experienced writers.
