Quick Fiction:stories in Flash (ENG-208)
In this workshop, we'll write stories that strike with the swiftness of a cell phone camera flash or bits of news flying into cyber space, stories that might be as long as a page or as short as a simple sentence. We'll investigate jokes, fables, parables, lists, monologues, dialogues, sketches, anecdotes, tales, emails, and letters as forms for writing the mini story. Francis Camoin's assertion that the mini story's "small size should be its glory not its limitation" will be our guiding principle. Prerequisite: ITW 101.
