Flash Class in Mass


I just heard about this....excellent opportunity if you're in that area.

Flashing for Writers

Sunday, January 18, 2009, 1:00pm-3:00pm
Sunday, January 25, 2009, 1:00pm-3:00pm
Sunday, February 1, 2009, 1:00pm-3:00pm
Sunday, February 8, 2009, 1:00pm-3:00pm

Location: Cornerstone Books, 45 Lafayette Street, Salem MA 01970

About the Program

This course will discuss and experiment with three forms of the ultra-short story: microfiction (under 250 words); flash fiction (under 500 words) and short-short (under 1000 words). Using examples from internet journal Night Train and print journal Quick Fiction, we’ll discover the differences and similarities between these types. We’ll also talk about the history of the form, from fables of old to vignettes to the current boom in flash fiction of all kinds. You’ll also write one story for each week (after the first) and workshop those pieces among your peers.

Please bring pencil and paper to class with you, and a willingness to discuss. Links to Night Train and copies of Quick Fiction will be provided. No raincoat required.

Still Alive

So I'm not a great blogger. Life gets in the way.

Just dropping in to say I do keep my links updated. There are two that are now defunct and I will mark ASAP. For my own safekeeping they will stay on the page and simply marked so nobody wastes time. Sad, because they are two of my faves. But there's still plenty to read.


In progress now - arrangements for another reading. Will let you know as soon as I have the lineup!
