FREE Online Class | Wild Combinations: Experiments in Fiction

VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).

This workshop will serve as a writer’s laboratory for flash fiction or the beginnings of a longer story. We’ll read a few examples of innovative form, style, and/or plot, and we’ll ask what if: what if you told your detective story in text messages? What if you told your story out of order? What if your piece included images? You’ll leave with new pages and with an expanded sense of what you’re “allowed” to write.
