Program Description

Event Details

Flash fiction is a very short story, generally 750-1500 words or less. It is neither a prose poem nor a vignette; it is writing that must adhere to the demands of crafting a full story.  Writing in this compressed form forces writers to create immediate impact, and in today’s world of digital content and social media, flash fiction is gaining in popularity. 

This class will cover the importance of shrinking the scope of your writing while developing character, setting up conflict and rising the tension for a complete story arc. 

Laura Woodward Cavers instructs the class and has ten years experience teaching writing at Darien and New Canaan Libraries.  She holds an MFA in Creative Writing.  She hopes to have her first novel, Bell Weathers, published in 2025.

The series of workshop classes meets on Thursday evenings: 6/20, 7/11, 7/18 & 7/25 (class will not meet on 6/27 & 7/4).  Registering for the first class covers registration for the full series.
