The founder of the Phoenix Poetry Series and three-time Pushcart nominee hosts a two-part creative writing workshop on flash memoir.
Attendees will read and discuss numerous examples of flash memoir (focusing on the re-creation of personal memories) as well as participate in a writing exercise. The first session concludes with an overview of a take-home writing prompt. The second session requires participants to workshop an original, newly completed piece of flash memoir. Individualized feedback will focus on issues of style, voice, pacing, detail, development, diction, and syntax.
- Cost: $35 for two sessions.
