Flash fiction is defined as very short fiction, but there are varying degrees of how short that fiction actually should be. In this workshop, Reddick will share a few examples of excellent flash fiction from a variety of writers and literary magazines and journals in which they were published as models in advance, so workshop time can be spent crafting a piece.
This workshop will be held as an online video conference call through Zoom. Details for joining the video call will be provided to all participating writers after registering. Course materials will be provided as email attachments before the first of the three sessions.
January 21; 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Zoom. $45/person, limited to 15 participants. Learn more and register at https://patconroyliterarycenter.eventbrite.com
