WELLESLEY PRE-COLLEGE EXPLORATORY WORKSHOP | FLASH FICTION: WRITING THE VERY SHORT STORY

PROGRAM DATES: July 26 - July 31, 2020

APPLICATIONS OPEN: January 2, 2020

Explore a topic of interest in a non-credit one-week workshop designed to give you a quick taste of college life. Course choices may include writing, leadership, math, science, gender studies and the arts.

Flash fictions (sudden fiction, micro fiction) are short stories 750-2000 words in length. We will practice writing flash fictions, revising, and editing them for a final polish. At the end of the week, writers will have a solid portfolio of work.

This workshop offers an intensive opportunity to work as real writers work: real writers write, show their work to friendly readers, and revise. This course is for young women who already write fiction and for those who have never written a story, but are ready to take a chance.The class takes as its focus the genre of flash fiction, a very popular contemporary form of the short story. A flash fiction can be only one paragraph or several pages long. Our work together will move back and forth between reading brilliant examples of flash fiction from around the world and writing our very own flash fictions
