I’ll be teaching a workshop on flash fiction for teens at the British Council in Colombo at the end of this month, following the Galle Literary Festival.
Flash (also known as micro fiction, postcard fiction, short stories, sudden fiction, and prose poems) is the art of brevity take to an extreme, where not only every word counts but every comma and every line break: a complete story under 1000 words and preferably less.
This workshop will inspire participants to write at least 2 flash stories to submit to numerous publications and contests that are looking for flash fiction.
Date: Monday 29 January 2018
TIme: 03.00 p.m. – 05.00 p.m. (followed by refreshments)
Venue: British Council library Colombo 03
