Workshop descriptionIn this session we’ll look closely at the sometimes elusive short story form called flash fiction. Stories under 1,000 words are challenging to write, but honing this craft helps a writer learn to pack a punch in a sentence, solidify a character with just a few brush strokes, and create setting with an object. We’ll look closely at story examples, generate some writing, and discuss revision strategies.Presenter biographySherrie Flick is the author of four books, including two short story collections, Thank Your Lucky Stars and Whiskey, Etc.,both published by Autumn House Press.
