TUESDAYS, JANUARY 8 —FEBRUARY 12 | In this class you will birth, nurture, and release a brand-new flash fiction story. After extensive revisions of your work, you will submit your finished piece to three literary journals for publication, or to three literary contests. A laptop, tablet, or iPad is required for this workshop. If you write longhand, please also bring your journal or notebook along with your computer (not in place of it). Students registering for this class should be prepared to create new work from scratch in a concentrated, serious environment. Homework will consist of revisions and a few exercises to help ensure that your piece is as polished and economically written as possible. Prior fiction or nonfiction writing experience is strongly suggested.
