A daylong workshop on creating and editing marketable flash fictions, essays, and/or memoirs. Just like “regular” stories, flashes are often either too short to understand or too long to captivate. In this class we will attempt to shape our pieces into sparkling little (publishable) gems under 1,000 words. Bring in a story or two you’ve been working on or, if you haven’t tried writing flash yet, just come with some ideas and whatever you use to create with—laptop, phone, paper and pencil, etc. The class will include examples and exercises and there will be plenty of time for discussion. Instructor bio: Molly Giles’ most recent book is WIFE WITH KNIFE, winner of the Leapfrog Press International Fiction Prize. She has published four other prize-winning story collections and a novel. Her second novel, THE HOME FOR UNWED HUSBANDS, is scheduled for publication on Valentine’s Day, 2023. Over the years, she has taught Creative Writing at San Francisco State University, University of San Francisco, San Jose State, University of Hawaii, and the University of Arkansas; she has also taught private classes and workshops at Naropa, the Community of Writers, Napa Valley Writers Conference, and Book Passage in Corte Madera.
