A flash new workshop series in Perth! Calling for new and experienced, young and old fans of flash fiction. Find out why these fun, energetic, short-short stories are increasingly popular and learn to write and edit your own.
This six-part workshop series focuses on how to write flash fiction. Over six workshops you will produce a number of flash fiction pieces. The workshop series also includes the following:

- the fun business of writing,
- feedback on writing (sometimes not so fun),
- editing techniques to make your work shine,

While we can’t guarantee your finished pieces will be published, our aim is to help bring your flash writing pieces to a publication standard.
