You can tell a literary genre has hit the mainstream when it’s deemed worthy of a textbook. This panel features four authors of flash fiction handbooks talking about what techniques they’ve included and how to teach them. They’ll discuss theory and craft for varying audiences, from high school to college and beyond; the future of the genre; and who may write the next great flash fiction.
