People dream of writing books but often are intimidated by what they imagine is the sheer size of the project - but how about a six-word story?!
Flash fiction is a genre that’s perhaps best suited for our times --- a story could be the size of a single Facebook post, or even a tweet. A typical flash is about 1000 words long --- two double spaced typed pages, but there are journals and anthologies that publish stories just 300 and 100 words long. There's even a subgenre of a six-word story (the famous example is Hemingway's: For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn.).
Olga Zilberbourg ’00, Consulting Editor of Narrative Magazine, will discuss the joy of flash fiction, provide recommendations on where to look for excellent short-shorts, and share a simple "how-to" for creating a flash fiction story of your own.
