Flash Fiction: Create a Moment, Create a World with Helen Phillips
July 28 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm$124.00
How can I evoke a world/situation/character/emotion swiftly and potently? This is a question that fiction writers are always asking, but flash fiction brings particular urgency to it. Participants will examine samples of contemporary flash fiction, and then try out the form for themselves. We will consider questions such as: How can a piece achieve arc and resonance in such a short space? How does one achieve the precision of language necessary for this form? What can this form offer the reader in lieu of the satisfaction of a longer narrative?
