Flash Fiction Critique & Workshop (#2)
Harrisonburg and Rockingham County writers prepare to unlock your creativity at our next Flash Fiction Critique Workshop.
We'll dive into the captivating world of flash fiction where every word counts. Whether you're a seasoned writer or just dipping your toes into the writing waters, this workshop offers a unique opportunity to craft compelling micro-narratives that leave a lasting impact.
The critique session will provide invaluable feedback from fellow participants, offering fresh perspectives and sharpening your storytelling skills.
INTRODUCTIONS - We'll get to learn a little about each other
CRITIQUES - We'll read aloud our work, then go around the room offering constructive criticism.
"Starting In a Flash: Kickstarting the Beginning of Your Flash-Fiction Story" by Jake Kinzie will teach you how to grab a reader's attention from the very start.
"Talking about Dialog" by James Blakey will cover methods to make your dialog sparkle.
WHAT TO BRING:
- Twelve (12) copies of your submission. It need not be fiction. Creative non-fiction, memoir, humorous essay, etc. are all welcome as long as you keep it under 1,000 words. (That's a hard limit). 1.5 spacing. Line numbers. Word count noted on page 1.
- Lunch/snack and drink. Food and drink are not permitted in the library, but there's an exception for the meeting rooms.
- A positive attitude, a desire to learn, a willingness to accept criticism, and a determination to have fun.
Spots are limited, so please don't RSVP unless you plan to attend. If you find you can't attend, change your RSVP as soon as possible to allow people on the waitlist to alter their plans.
We'll break halfway through the workshop, so people who have cars in two-hour parking can move their vehicles to avoid a parking ticket.
While our group meets at Massanutten Library, we are not affiliated or endorsed by the library.
Message James if you have any questions.
