Session Full

In this encouraging, supportive, and in-depth creative writing class, we’ll read and write a range of flash fiction, short memoir, and poems, investigating both traditional and experimental forms. Students will emerge with a portfolio of work and new ideas to explore.

    A typical class will include:

  • Reading of sample work
  • Analysis of sample exercises/prompts
  • Sharing of writing
  • Revision and self-analysis
  • Journals in which to publish
  • Relevent aspects of a writer's life
  • Theory of Flash Fiction
  • Extra books and articles to read

The instructor will provide personal feedback. You will also receive guidelines for evaluating your peers' writing and giving each other feedback.

The class will be capped at 16 students - enough that we will have a wealth of ideas and perspectives - but small enough to ensure personalized attention from the instructor every day.
