Flash Fiction Workshop

Another late post;

I ran a flash fiction workshop late last year which turned out to be a most interesting experience. There were about 12 participants who ranged in age from 12 to 71. Most had not done any serious writing previously. It was great teaching them the fundamentals of story structure and how to provide a complete prose narrative in a very concise and compact format. What I enjoyed the most was discovering the reasons why people wanted to write:

“I have so many stories inside me” – a 71-year old retiree

“I want to be able to communicate better in English.” – a Japanese expat’s housewife

“I want to surprise my girlfriend.” – a college student

“It will help me do my work.” – a business manager

“I want people to know who I am.” – a 12 year old girl.
