Flash Nonfiction I: An Introduction

You’ve got a story. Tell it in a way that packs a punch.

IMG_0087Flash nonfiction is creative nonfiction compressed into a space of 1000 words or less. When done successfully, the story grips readers from the first few words and holds them breathless until the end.

During this ONLINE four-week course, we will tap into books, videos, podcasts, and samples of great flash nonfiction and learn about techniques that make this powerful genre work.

Don’t think you’ll get away with just reading and studying the craft, though. We’ll put these techniques into practice through writing exercises and peer feedback. At the end of the four weeks, you will leave the course with a better understanding of what makes flash nonfiction work, a list of resources for further study and/or submission ideas, and several new pieces of work under your belt. For testimonials, see below.
