SCULPTING FLASH FICTION
July 11-July 31
Editing is the most important part of the writing process. As serious writers, you know it’s through the editing process that we begin to refine and sculpt our messages. But just as writing flash fiction requires a
different set of skills, so does editing flash fiction.
In this workshop we will use the tools of ambiguity and implication; we will learn the different between chipping and chopping; we will learn how to shrink-wrap text, and most of all learn how to achieve the specific needs of flash fiction as I guide you and other participants to edit your real works in progress.
This will be a 3-week online workshop format class with limited availability. Participants should have a basic understanding of flash fiction and come to the class with flash pieces already in progress. Each participant will have the opportunity to submit 1-2 stories per week.
I’ve been a freelance editor since 2004 as well as a co-founder and editor for the flash fiction press Fast Forward Press. I have edited four anthologies including Fast Forward: The Mix Tape, an book of flash fiction that was a finalist for a Colorado Book Award.
Workshop runs July 11-31 (capped at 10 participants)
