12pm to 2pm, 11 June.
This is a class for people interested in discovering the craft of writing small. In writing 250-500 words, you’ll stimulate your creativity, pay attention to language and think in new ways about structure and story. You might blend poetry and prose; you might push yourself towards experimentation; you might write a small moment, or a whole world. All welcome. Discover the what, why and when of flash fiction with Michelle Elvy.
