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.
