The founder of the Phoenix Poetry Series and three-time Pushcart nominee hosts a two-part creative writing workshop on flash memoir.
The first session involves a discussion of the tools of the trade, as well as the reading and discussion of some sample flash memoir and micro-prose. The session concludes with an overview of a take-home writing prompt. In the second session, participants workshop an original, newly completed piece of flash (per the parameters of the take-home writing prompt). Individualized feedback will focus on style, voice, pacing, detail, development, diction, syntax, and more.
- Cost: $35 + fees for two sessions.
- Register below or on Eventbrite.
