The Marvels of Flash Fiction – Workshop, with Karen Schauber M.A.
As a genre, flash fiction (brief condensed stories written in under 1000 words), has exploded onto the literary arts scene exciting the imagination of readers and writers alike and creating a world-wide phenomenon of followers obsessed with the form.
Vancouver Flash Fiction writer, Karen Schauber (of ‘The Group of Seven Reimagined’ flash fiction anthology fame), presents ‘The Marvels of Flash Fiction’, a hands-on workshop, to CAA Vancouver members and guests, on Wed. March 11, 2020.
Participants will be introduced to the key elements in writing fabulous flash fiction and will gain a definitive understanding of what flash fiction is and what it is not. Attendees will delight in crafting ‘Killer First Sentences’ in an energized creative writing exercise, with visual & text-based prompts. And, will conclude the workshop with the key tools to sculpt and polish a finely nuanced flash fiction piece. Join us for this lively presentation.
Cost: Free to members, guests $10, students with ID $5. Pay at the door. The public is welcome.
