What makes a standout, publishable short, short story?
Jason Lee Norman, the creator of Edmonton’s coffee sleeve story project, and the author of two flash writing collections, presents a short form workshop. Learn how to craft brief but full stories.
From 100 to 700 words, this popular form presents some challenges: how can you introduce more than one character? How do you include a plot or create conflict? Learn how to tackle the flash form, how to draft and to edit the story—sometimes you’ll need a scalpel, other times you’ll need a machete—and just what it takes to get a piece into print.
Join Third Verb and develop your craft.
