Flash fiction are usually stories between fifty and two thousand words. Distilling experience into a few pages or paragraphs forces us to pay close attention to every conversation, every action, every gesture, every word. In this session, writer Elan Barnehama (Finding Bluefield) will guide participants thought a fast-paced flash fiction workshop. The first draft of anything is a messy process, so the group will first discuss a few techniques for getting started. And then, they’ll write. Next, each participant will read their untidy draft, and the group will respond by pointing out what they liked, followed by a chance for revision and rereading. Participants will leave with a story that’s well on its way to being submission-ready!
