Flash nonfiction, simply put, is true-to-life writing defined by extreme compression: it's saying what you've got to say using as few words, and as much beauty, as possible. An endlessly accessible, playful, potent form, flash nonfiction is evermore popular; from Brevity to River Teeth, The Rumpus to The Sun, legions of great journals are eager to publish great flash. In this prompt-driven workshop, we'll read masters of the flash nonfiction form, including Anna Vodicka, Ross Gay, Brenda Miller, Ira Sukrungruang, Abigail Thomas, and more; we'll talk about what stories are suited for flash, how to tell them well, and where to publish them; and most of all, we'll write, and write, and write, via in-class exercises and take-home prompts. Students will leave the class with reams of new writing and ideas for where to publish. | Maximum: 12 writers
