Have you ever thought of writing flash fiction, but didn’t, because you didn’t know where to start? Writing short can be tricky – you have to make every word count to convey a compelling, complete story in 100-1500 words.
Laura will teach you how, helping you decide what to write about, how to develop standout characters in situations that will have readers on the edge of their seats.
You’ll craft a story in class, and we’ll pore over every word to make them shine! But wait, there’s more! You’ll learn advanced wordsmith skills that will help with all your writing, short or long!

This class was amazing. I wasn't sure if I would be able to write something short. I'm a wordy women and had no idea how I could write something so short. You can. Laura will teach you. She provides awesome feedback to help make your work shine while also providing lots of resources with the lecture.
This class will not only teach you how to write great flash fiction, it will also improve how you write longer works. Take it!
