Brief Description:

Flash fiction is a short, short story. Can you learn to write fiction in a flash? This workshop will get you started. Once you have an appreciation of the skills and craft that go into storytelling, you can begin to write coffee-time tales that take little time to read but are perfectly formed – short, but not necessarily sweet!
