Flash Fiction Writing

Flash Fiction Writing

We’ll discuss the art of very short fiction, the often-maligned adverb, using the five senses and avoiding purple prose. Then we’ll undertake two flash fiction writing exercises and share our stories. Participants will be offered the opportunity to have their work published in a professional anthology (in both print and eBook formats) in support of charity via the writing challenges.
