Writers in this class will be exposed to a variety of short forms and challenged to write “on command” from a small selection of prompts. The exercises are structured to teach students how to dive right into the action, be selective in their word choice, and create writing habits even when they’re short on time.
Homework OfferedLearners should be prepared to write at least one flash fiction story a week.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedWriters who want to get the most out of this class should submit their weekly writing for feedback. This is optional but highly recommended.
0All materials for this class will be provided. I recommend students take this class on a device that has access to a word processing application such as Google docs or Word. Students are welcome to write by hand, however they will need to type their work for submission.
I cannot predict what writing students will bring to class. All students will be advised to only share work that is YA appropriate. Writers crafting stories with sensitive material should share privately with me, and not publicly in the classroom.
