Flash Fiction Class

On a beautiful October weekend in 2004, I took my first writing class. I'd been writing for awhile and finally realized I needed to LEARN how to write. I went to just the right place. The story I created in that class was published at Flashquake and later nominated for a Pushcart Prize. That made me happy! If you've had a desire to write or if you're a writer who'd like to explore flash fiction, then I'd highly recommend this class. Stevan and Joanna will help you love to write and to find just the right way to say what you want to say.


The beauty and power of flash fiction lie in its streamlined brevity. In a two day workshop we will explore this elegant genre, sometimes called sudden, micro, quick, or postcard fiction. Participants will read selected examples, explore various methods used in flash fiction, write at least two short-short prose pieces, and learn about the many publishing opportunities for flash fiction writers.

Join Stevan Allred and Joanna Rose from 10-4 on two consecutive Saturdays, June 18 & 25, at Stevan's fabulous home outside of Estacada.

Stevan has published short fiction in over two dozen journals, both print and on-line, including Berkeley Fiction Review, Beloit Journal, Rosebud and the Iconoclast. Joanna Rose's short work has apperared in ZYZZYA, Story Magazine, Artisan Journal and Pine Grove Literary Review.

Great Recession Price: $100 (paid by June 11) or $125 thereafter.

Optional field trip to Estacada's infamous Safari Club after the workshop on the 18th. The Safari Club would be the quintessential 'dive' bar, were it not for the décor, which features a collection of large animal taxidermy arrayed in dioramas. A great place to have a beverage while you take notes on what a strange world we inhabit.
