We will begin the course by reading a piece of “flash” fiction and discussing the use of story elements such as character’s wants/desires, conflict, character’s growth/change and resolution. We’ll also briefly discuss figurative language and author’s style. Each week, students will write one short piece of fiction with a maximum of 500 words.
By the end of the course, students will have generated 5-6 500-word fictional pieces.
