Flash fiction is prose less than 1000 words, with a definite story and sharply drawn characters. It can often be written in one or two sittings. We will analyze a few published examples, look at magazines that publish flash, engage in some writing exercises, read aloud, and comment. If it sounds a bit like theater improv, just say yes.
