Flash fiction, flash prose, sudden fiction, microfiction. The definitions vary: “work under 1500 words” or “work under 1000 words,” and sometimes, “work under 500 words.” The good news is these small spaces can be quite dynamic and the creative possibilities within this form are endless.

Journals are looking for flash prose, and, as the pieces are so short, they can fit more in each issue, which ups your chances of publication. In this course we will do exercises which will generate your own flash prose and look at different ways in which various forms of flash prose work. We will workshop through revisions and you should come away with a few solid pieces, and, most important, the tools to keep generating flash prose that resonates.
