Continuing Education Course



Compressed Forms: Slice of Memoir, Flash Fiction, or Poetry


Learn to distill language and generate narrative urgency to create dynamic compressed forms of expression. Less is more! Formats options include: 6 word memoir, slice of memoir or vignette(s), stand-alone chapters, short fiction, brief fiction, flash fiction, postcard story, novella, prose poem, concrete/visual poetry, and more… Focus remains as always on voice and story, but with attention to word choice, syntax and rhythm. This course serves as a perfect introduction to Creative Writing or an ideal way for intermediate/advanced students to take their long form writing to a new level. Final project may be a collection of compressed form pieces or selected chapters for a book length memoir or novel in progress.
