“Flash Fiction for Hoarders: A Flash Prose Workshop”
In “Flash Fiction for Hoarders,” we won’t be cleaning out our closets or listening to Marie Kondo. We’ll instead spend our time reading zany flash dense with character development, symbolism, and memorable settings. In the past, we’ve read work from writers like Kim Addonizio, Bonnie Jo Campbell, and Cathy Ulritch. We’ll write, share our work, and brainstorm narrative strategies for packing our flash to the rafters, despite its 1000 word limit. Minimalists beware. Hoarders, reinforce those foundations and get ready to pack the words in.
Wendy Dinwiddie is an Appalachian writer, editor, and educator. Her work has appeared in Ploughshares, Mississippi Review, Bat City Review, and elsewhere. She is a graduate of the MFA program at the University of Alabama, where she served as the managing editor of the Black Warrior Review. She currently lives in Tuscaloosa, AL with three unhappy houseplants and an anxious dog named Birdie. She teaches literature and creative writing at UA.
