The Intersection of Lyric and Narrative: A Four-Week Class in Flash Fiction/Prose Poetry
Prose poetry or flash fiction: Different animals? Or are they one and the same? In this class, we'll study some examples of each form and use those to inspire our own flash/prose peices. You'll leave class with drafts-in-progress and a list of markets for your finished work. Ideal for poets wanting to bust out into prose and fiction writers who yearn to be poets. This is a four-part class meeting on May 1, 8, 15 & 22.
