Editing is the most important part of the writing process. As serious writers, you know it’s through the editing process that we refine and sculpt our messages.But just as writing flash fiction requires a different set of skills, so does editing flash fiction.

Participants should have a basic understanding of flash fiction and come to the class with pieces already in progress. Each participant will have the opportunity to submit 1-2 stories per week. This is an online workshop format class with limited space.

How does communing with your fellow writers in a rustic setting in the gorgeous Rocky Mountains sound? How about a chance to clear your mind at high altitude, open your mind to creativity and expansion and take in the “grand” view?

This year Nancy Stohlman and Kathy Fish have chosen beautiful Shadowcliff Mountain Lodge in Grand Lake, Colorado for their summer retreat! Grand Lake is just 1.5 hours north of Denver and is in one of the prettiest areas of Colorado, adjacent to Rocky Mountain National Park.

We’ll spend four days and nights with mountain air, lakeside views, skies full of stars and lots of flash fiction. We’ll generate stories, we’ll sculpt stories, we’ll rest, we’ll share, we’ll conference and we will be inspired together in the beauty of late summer in Colorado, under the August meteor showers. We may even spot some wildlife!

We’d love to have you!

*New! Sculpting Flash Fiction

SCULPTING FLASH FICTION

An online workshop January 4-24

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
bonsaidifferent set of skills, so too 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 your 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. Each participant will have the opportunity to submit 1-2 stories per week.

Tuition: $109

Workshop runs January 4-24
