Writing SMALL
6:30 PM
The College of Idaho
Description:
Got five minutes? Great. This workshop will help you commit memories and experiences to paper in a safe environment suitable for all levels. With these, you have everything you need to write a short work of fiction and be part of a rising literary genre called flash fiction, in which stories are told within roughly 100 to 1,000 words. The primary allure of this genre is that it can affect a reader in a shorter space. And it doesn’t take anywhere near as long to write as it does to finish a novel, or for that matter a ten-page story. In both its compression and its attention to language, flash is very much akin to poetry. Which is what your humble rectangle of words might turn into. Or perhaps a series of tiny, finely realized essays. We will look at some works by master flash artists, noting how they use and distill many of the basic techniques of all the genres. And then we will get down to the very big business of writing small! This workshop will help you commit memories and experiences to paper in a safe and fun environment suitable for all levels.

This is a $29 class.
