About this Event

Flash fiction workshop

What is flash fiction?

How short can you go?

Why all writers should be ‘flashers’

Letting the reader do the work.

Where to get prompts and ideas for flashing.

A few painless exercises – your chance to shine.

An example of flash fiction from David Robertson:

‘It’s going to be a hard winter.’

‘Really. Why?’

‘See all the berries in the trees...’

‘Believe old wives tales do you?’

‘Of course.’

‘But it’s only September. So tell me oh great sage, what portent informed you of the passing of summer into autumn?’

‘Easy, Strictly’s back on telly.’
