Visual arts and short fiction collide!
Explore the different forms of flash fiction, including the drabble, sudden fiction, and the nano-tale! Learn the ins and outs of writing flash fiction, and create your own piece of artful flash fiction using engaging writing prompts and vintage postcards.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The workshop will begin with a short but thorough introduction to flash fiction, which is fictional work of extreme brevity that still offers character and plot development. The various forms of flash fiction include, the dribble (50-word story), the drabble (100-word story), sudden fiction (750-word story), and the nano-tale (1,000-word story). Participants will learn about the technicalities of writing flash fiction and be given useful writing tips. Participants will also be provided with examples of well-crafted pieces of flash fiction.
Participants will have the chance to choose from an exciting selection of writing prompts and vintage postcards to craft their own pieces of flash fiction. After receiving feedback on their pieces, the participants will edit/revise their work, then transcribe their final, polished written work onto to their selected postcards to create unique pieces of flash fiction and visual art.
