Flash Fiction Workout, with Giovanna Iozzi

‘Flash is its own form, uniquely suited to innovation and experimentation…That’s what makes it so exciting to read and write. Flash fiction, done well, can be so mind-bending and fresh.’ Kathy Fish

In this class, we will explore the exciting short form of Flash Fiction using quirky themes, concepts and visual writing prompts. We will:

  • Read a wide range of published Flash pieces from the heart-breaking, funny and joyful to the experimental, uncanny and weird to analyse the breadth and potential of the form.
  • Discover the best online and print places to publish your work as well as competition opportunities.
  • Write Flash pieces in class each week, sharing work with the group, as well as bringing in pieces worked on at home.

This course is ideal for generating lots of new material. It will bring concision, vibrancy and wonder to your work and welcomes all levels of writer.

Wednesdays, 10.30am to 1pm. May 11, 18, 25, break for half term, June 8, 15, 22.
