Interested in writing short stories? Flash fiction, stories of 1500 words or fewer, is an excellent sub-category to explore. Students will experiment with writing stories of various lengths, using in-class prompts. We'll also be reading and discussing stories by well-known writers. Students will draft their own story (up to 1500 words) during our time together. All levels of writers welcome. 

Class size is limited to 8 students. The fee for the 6-week class is $140.

Students must be registered by Thursday, January 14th to receive the Zoom link.
