Short and Sweet: Prose Poems, Flash Fiction and Mini-Memoirs with Alison Luterman

December 3, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm PST


“If brevity is the soul of wit, then prose poems and flash memoirs are manna for the spirit! They are great ways to cut through to the heart of things; the space limitation helps push writers to leap-frog over thickets of exposition to land on the just-enough resonance of a clear thought or image,” says instructor Alison Luterman.

In this online class we’ll look at examples of short pieces from practitioners such as Lydia Davis and Russell Edson, and we’ll explore how to incorporate techniques like free association and juxtaposition into our work. Then we’ll write, share, and write some more.

Alison says, “By the end of class, students will be conversant in a variety of short forms, and will have a fistful of their own short pieces to link together or savor individually.”

All levels welcome; come prepared to jump in and splash around.
