Workshop | Master the Flash | Sat, July 27 | 9-12 am Eastern Time | Live via Zoom

July 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


$55 | Saturday, July 27, 2024, 9-12 am Eastern Time | Live via Zoom

Writers with whom I’ve worked find almost instant success with the short form known as flash essay, flash nonfiction, or micro-memoir. I love teaching folks how to write these, because this form can open doors to fabulous places. I got introduced to it only a few years ago, and it has changed my life and my thinking. The short essay holds infinite possibilities for publishing—from a magazine-ready piece, to a well-crafted social-media post, to meaningful newsletter copy, to a short chapter in a book.

I’ll guide you in writing a short essay or two in one morning from the comfort of your own writing room or backyard. Make yourself a thermos of tea and Zoom with me from idea to finished product in a matter of a few hours.
