Keep It Short: Tips and Tricks for Writing Flash Fiction
Writing flash and micro fiction can be a satisfying, quick way to tell stories and there are an increasing number of markets for both forms. Getting a story right in under 1000 words, or in the case of micro fiction, under 250, is a challenge. This workshop will be part lecture and part workshop, including feedback from Apex Magazine Flash Fiction editor Rebecca E. Treasure.
