Join writer Tommy Dean for a generative writing session focused on creating dynamic and immersive settings for flash and microfiction. We’ll look at model texts and get inspired by writing prompts. Participants will have the opportunity to start 5-6 drafts during this session.

Flash fiction's diminutive word count necessitates setting the scene and/or revealing the location of a narrative quickly but specifically and uniquely if you want to form compelling stories. Tommy's workshop will explore ways to create vivid settings that will add depth to any story, and enthrall your reader!

*Course texts will be from online litmags and provided by the instructor.

COURSE TAKEAWAYS:
  • Write/start 5-6 flash drafts.
  • Learn about craft moves to evoke settings.
  • Learn how writers of flash balance detail, action, and exposition in stellar examples.
  • Get two hours of generative writing time in a safe, inspiring environment.
