The above quotation, often attributed to Hemingway, is a six word example of Flash Fiction – very short stories that can have a very big impact.
This course will help you work on a piece of flash fiction in just two weeks. Flash can be anything from 6 words to 1000, depending on the publication/editor. More often, they’re shorter, concise little images that pack an emotional punch.
We’ll study modern writers of flash to determine the technique and tone required to make a successful piece of flash.
The course runs for two weeks online and at the end of it, you should have at least one polished piece of flash fiction to either send out on submission or put into your portfolio.
Suitable for beginners and intermediates.

‘I attended a four-week advanced short story course with Sarah Dobbs and I learnt many techniques for editing and finishing stories. CW the Artists Way have also helped with my novel both structurally and in line-by-line suggestions. There is nothing better than the expert advice of a practitioner who has developed skills in editing and teaching by writing.’
