About This Class

If you've ever been interested in writing punchy, fast-paced scenes, this course is for you.

If you've ever wanted to write stories as compact as they are intense, this course is for you.

If you've ever wanted to just get out there and write a story, but always had trouble getting past the first hurdle, this course is for you. 

Flash fiction is an interesting and challenging niche of writing, made for the modern world. A full story written in under a set number of words, usually under 1000 or 1500, is a perfect snippet to pack all of the story and character of a full length tale into. 

Together, we'll go through the concept and theory behind flash fiction before making our way through methods of planning out a story that can fit into that space. After that and a few tips, you'll write a story, or make an effort to.

I hope to enjoy this journey with you!
