Flash Fiction: The Power of Writing Short

Flash fiction isn’t simply fast fiction. It’s storytelling written big—by writing short. Miniatures hold so much power that authors have turned to them to write highly successful novels and memoirs. Learn more about the short short and explore its potential to enliven and deepen your writing.

Peg Alford Pursell is the author of Show Her a Flower, A Bird, A Shadow (ELJ Editions, March 2017), a collection of flash fiction, micro-fictions, and hybrid prose with praise from Peter Orner, Joan Silber, Antonya Nelson, and others. Her work has appeared in Permafrost, the Los Angeles Review, Joyland Magazine, and many other journals and anthologies. She is the founder and director of the national reading series Why There Are Words and of WTAW Press. Pursell has taught flash fiction locally at the College of Marin, Book Passage, and in North Bay Writers Workshops. Visit her at www.pegalfordpursell.com
