Workshop Overview

In this workshop we will look to prose poems, flash fiction and micro-essays to explore the rousing potential of short-form prose. Often considered a borderline genre between poetry and prose, "flash" pieces engage all of the style and subject of longer pieces, but in a distilled form. Whether you are a beginner hoping to dip your feet into writing, a veteran looking for a new model for voice, image and plot or just a busy human intrigued by the possibilities of bite-size storytelling, this one-day workshop will offer a buffet of readings and writing prompts to stimulate your creative practice.
