“Moments in Miniature” with MaxieJane Frazier
Please join us to study flash fiction and nonfiction writing by reading from inspiring authors and considering the effect of this abbreviated form. From the power of implication to landing big metaphors, we’ll unpack the hows and whys of flash writing. In the end we’ll respond to a prompt and begin a little flash work of our own. If it 300 words or less, maybe enter it in our Ultra-Flash Fiction Contest. See guidelines here.
