Flash Prose | Led by Cassidy McCants

6-week workshops, $225 to register

A piece of flash fiction is a story stripped down to its essence, usually consisting of no more than 1,000 words. In this generative course, we’ll study contemporary examples of flash fiction and nonfiction, and students will respond to writing prompts in order to create their own original flash prose pieces. We’ll practice saying more with fewer words; we’ll explore language and discover ways to push it to its greatest potential. By the end of the course, students should feel comfortable reading and responding to flash fiction. I also hope we’ll create a generous, nurturing space in which students feel eager to share their work. This will be a place for experimentation and practice.
