Writing from your ♥: Flash Fiction


notebook 1194456 960 720 cc zero


Flash fiction is a complete story, written in as little as six and no more than 1000 words. It contains the four elements of short story – protagonist, conflict, complication and resolution –   but sometimes they remain unwritten and are just implied. Who has touched both your head & heart?  Using Sandra Cisneros’ The House on Mango Street for inspiration, join us as we experiment with flash fiction in a creative setting where you can get to know other members of the community. Snacks will be provided!
