Michelle Richmond—The Condensed World of Flash Fiction

This class is sold out!

Check out our other classes and workshops.

Hard as it might be to imagine, literature can exist in 300-800 word chunks. It's all about streamlining, condensing, choosing your story elements well. What are the rules for writing compelling flash fiction? Get to the heart of the conflict, skip the backstory, focus on just one character... and then maybe throw the rules out the window. Michelle Richmond, editor of the anthology Flash in the Attic: 33 Very Short Stories and New York Times bestselling author, will talk about the art of flash fiction, and the shortcuts to writing a terrific work of mini-lit. 

Michelle Richmond is author of two story collections: Hum, winner of the Catherine Doctorow Innovative Fiction Prize, and The Girl in the Fall-Away Dress, winner of the AWP Award. Her novels are Golden StateThe Year of FogNo One You Know, and Dream of the Blue Room.
