Event description
Flash Fiction Fun! Learn techniques and get inspired by this interactive + generative writing workshop with Victoria Buitron.

About this event

The Flash Fiction Form + Fun Writing Workshop will be a four-hour Zoom workshop held each Wednesday in May (4th-25th, at 7pm). The focus will be to generate one draft of a flash fiction piece every week. The first day will focus on the word limit in flash fiction. What can be told in 1000 words? 500? 100? We will focus on what is said and left unsaid. We will see how the weight of each word constricts and expands the story. Day two will focus on ✨sights, sounds, and taste✨ in flash fiction. There will be an analysis on movement and the five senses. Day three will focus on folklore and retellings. What stories did your mother tell you so that you had no choice but to behave? What folktale do you wish could have ended differently? The last day will focus on unusual forms in flash fiction. A map. A car. A listicle. A quiz. We’ll learn how to use these formats to tell stories of our own. The goal is to generate work, experiment with form, and most of all—to have fun.
