Flash Memoir: Telling A Big Story in A Small Space with Jennifer Lang in person at HVWC

How do you write a whole story in a compact space, under 1000/750/500/250 words? Regardless of the number, the goal is to create a complete narrative. In this workshop, we’ll examine flash memoir and learn how to write brief, descriptive, thought-provoking prose in response to prompts. Some of the writers discussed will be Ron Riekki, Anne McGrath and Nina Boug Lichtenstein. The workshop is open to writers in all genres, all levels.

NB: This class will be taught in person at HVWC and will be capped at 15 students. Please review the course policies page before registering for any classes. Please email ask@writerscenter.org with any questions.

Her essays have appeared in Baltimore Review, Crab Orchard Review, Under the Sun, Ascent, Consequence, and elsewhere. A Pushcart Prize and Best American Essays nominee, she holds an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts and serves as Assistant Editor for Brevity.
