How do you fit the world into 1,000 words or fewer? In this four-week course, you’ll explore the genre of flash fiction and create your own compact masterpiece. Topics include the elements of fiction, fundamentals of storytelling within the constraints of flash, best practices in workshopping and revision, and opportunities for further reading and potential publication. You will write multiple flashes from prompts and from your own imagination, and with feedback, polish them in to small bright gems of your own.

Teaching Style: Tara's approach is open and discussion-based. Writing and reading are subjective, and everyone has different tastes. The point is to be able to clarify why you react a certain way to a work--what techniques are effective, or conversely, where are the opportunities to make the piece even stronger?
