Flash! How to Get Big Impact from Short Writing

Learn about the techniques of flash fiction, flash non-fiction and flash memoir. Short-form writing is a great way to experiment with new forms and genres, enabling you to find undiscovered aspects of your writing voice. In-class writing exercises and week-to-week assignments will challenge and inspire you, while the work and comments of other participants will provide even more perspective.
