What is it?
This is a two hour, real-time online workshop led by award winning flasher, National Flash Fiction Day anthology editor, and WriteClub founder Alison Powell.

In brief, the workshop will:
⚡Introduce you to some awesome flash fiction
⚡ Explore the (blurry) boundaries between flash fiction and prose poetry
⚡Show you how to compose exciting flash
⚡Offer you a wealth of prompts to help you get started
⚡Help you find places to publish.
You'll also leave with a list of websites and competitions where you can submit your finished flash.
