The Chicago Writers Association (virtual from anywhere)

Author Katey Schultz will offer a 90-minute presentation on flash fiction and non-fiction. Flash is one of the most popular genres being written and published today. Whether you’re already published, mired in NaNoWriMo drafts, deep into a memoir project, or fully devoted to fiction, the skills required in flash fiction and flash nonfiction will improve your ability to handle scene, embed metaphor, and target a character’s desires with precision. In this 90-minute presentation, you will learn the defining traits of flash form writing, study noteworthy examples, and come away with at least one prompt. You will leave the presentation feeling more confident about scene, concision, and that elusive “so what?” factor that can turn anecdotal writing into impactful narrative.
