*IN-PERSON* Julie Maclean Writers' Workshop - Flash Fiction

** THIS EVENT IS BOOKED OUT BUT YOU CAN STILL JOIN THE WAITING LIST**

When less is more - the art of the short, short story.

"For sale: baby shoes, never worn." This may be Hemingway's shortest story but it's all there in six words.

Start foraging for inspiration. Feel free to bring along a dream, a pic, a weird experience, a funny headline, a receipt, a fantasy. See it take shape as a work of art.

After an introduction to the form by way of six poems which trace a brief history of the form and highlight its non-prescriptive nature (a contemporary poem by Charles is included), participants will be encouraged to develop their own aubade poems with support from the facilitators as well from other participants through structured supportive feedback.
