Starting from Seed: Flash Fiction Workout with Tegan Moore

Thursdays 6/25 & 7/2 from 7:00-8:30 AM PDT; Thursdays 7/16 & 7/23 from 9:00-10:30 AM PDT

Not sure where to start with your critique group submission? Having trouble staying under 1500 words? Do you sit down to write a short story and accidentally end up 10k? Does everything you write turn into a sprawling epic? Let’s work together and figure out how to grow a bonsai story. Come prepared to use prompts and exercises to create the tiniest, loveliest stories we can make.

Suggested slack channels for ongoing discussion:
#writing-sprint_room and #writing-short_fiction
