Tyrese L. Coleman

November 12, 2022 @ EST 10:30 am - 12:30 pm


Flash fiction and flash nonfiction are highly popular yet sometimes misunderstood genres. A common misconception is that flash is easy to write because it is short (1,000 words or fewer). But creating a successful piece of flash requires effort and practice. This workshop introduces you to what makes flash work as narrative– the form and tenets of flash– and provides you with an opportunity to read flash from authors  accomplished in the genre.
