“For sale: baby shoes. Never worn.” Ernest Hemingway’s famous piece was perhaps the first flash fiction story ever written. In 2009, flash fiction, typically between 50 and 1,500 words, emerged as a new genre with only about 15 literary journals publishing this short form. Today, there are more than 700 sites and magazines publishing work in this evolving form.
What, exactly, is flash fiction? What are its elements and peculiarities? How is it different from a regular short story? To learn the answers to these questions, and write your own piece of flash fiction, join us on April 22 for a workshop led by fellow-CAA member June Rogers.
June has published several pieces with Brilliant Flash Fiction and 101.org. She will provide a brief overview and then lead attendees through a 30-minute writing exercise based on a written prompt or image. Members who wish to read their 100-word (or less) piece may do so. Q&A will follow.
