This course will examine this exciting genre, the short-short story or flash fiction. We will look at their rise in popularity and the many new competitions that now include flash as a category. By examining and deconstructing examples of flash from the masters, we will work out how to craft them and discover the elements of what makes a good flash fiction story. Using prompts, pictures and a box of tricks, we will try our hand at writing one or two, editing, refining and perfecting. Each participant will have the opportunity to share their work if they wish and get some advice on where they might be placed.
