You've heard it called plenty of things: flash fiction, micro-fiction, the short-short story, prose poems. But what is this delicious, quirky art form, and how do you create it?

"Flash fiction is its own genre," says Jenny Pritchett. "It's not just a longer poem, or a shorter story. It has its own cadences, chimes, and resolutions, and you can learn to write it by putting aside your expectations of more familiar forms."

In this one-day workshop, you and a close group of students will write and share two stories: one finished story that you bring to class and one that you'll write during class in response to a prompt using models from a selection of published short fiction. The in-class assignment will help you explore the possibilities and parameters of a familiar or, perhaps, a brand-new genre for beginning as well as more experienced writers.

  • Jenny is a rare talent, capable of providing for the students’ wide range of needs, from giving positive feedback and support, remembering the tiniest details of her student’s writing, to elucidating some very abstract concepts.
