Students will: Hone writing skills Explore different writing styles/genres Build confidence in writing voice Build confidence through writing in a supportive group Explore and learn about Flash Fiction as a story-telling technique

There will be at least five days between meetings each week to allow students time to finish their stories.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
