Saturday 14th September 2019 - Starts 2-5

TICKET PRICE: £20

Finished

Flash, sudden fiction, micro-stories, twitterature – those are just a few of the many names for this fun way of writing, used by great writers over the years, from Chekhov to Hemingway. We will look at some superb examples to see what makes them work. Using tried and tested games and writing prompts you will have a busy few hours, crafting your own flashes and planning others. Find out how flash techniques can help bust the dreaded writers’ block and how a single piece of flash fiction can grow and multiply.

Vanessa is a novelist, short-story writer and poet.
