Third Verb is proud to announce it’s teaming up with LitFest on October 22 (1:00PM to 2:30PM) at the Matrix Hotel for Flash Nonfiction: Learn to Write (Powerful) Teeny-Tiny True Stories. This session will be led by our very own Jessica Kluthe.
Join Third Verb and learn how to distill your prose into powerful, lasting flash nonfiction. This popular form is the perfect place to sharpen your writing skills as it encourages experimentation and privileges language. In this two hour workshop, we will begin by exploring the flash form and discover how a story can be full and well-crafted in as little as 50 words. We will then learn techniques to create meaningful short, short stories, and try out these micro-tools by responding to writing prompts. After we have a feel for the form, we will spend some time writing and revising our own teeny-tiny true stories. Facilitated by Third Verb’s Jessica Kluthe.

Tickets can be purchased HERE through LitFest. $12 through Eventbrite or $15 at the door (space is limited).
