Event description

Description

Works of flash fiction can range in length from 2,000 words to as few as six depending on the writer. It has become an expansive sub-genre of fiction and a great way to creatively distill stories down to their most essential parts. For the 2017-2018 academic year, Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time has been selected and will serve as our inspiration for this and other upcoming events. This fall we will be offering two workshops led by published author L. Penelope. Students, faculty, staff and members of the community are welcome to participate in one or both workshops. Registration is FREE, but space is limited.

In the workshop attendees will be :

  • Introduced to the basics of flash fiction writing;
  • Given theme-related prompts as part of in-session writing exercises;
  • Encouraged to share their drafts for feedback
  • Advised on ways to improve work and also tips for publishing and sharing work

L. Penelope has been writing since she could hold a pen. She is the author of fantasy, new adult, and paranormal romance with characters who match the real world. Her debut novel, SONG OF BLOOD & STONE, won the 2016 Self-Publishing eBook Award from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association. The fantasy series was picked up by St. Martin’s Press for publication starting 2018.

Light refreshments will be available for both sessions.
