Attention to style and structure is very important to the writer of tiny fictions, just as it is important to poets. That’s why the genre of flash fiction is often described as a borderline genre, in between poetry and prose. With that in mind, some of our assignments will begin with a form typically used in poetry, but instead of the line, we will be working with the sentence and the paragraph. We’ll approach writing flash fiction as an opportunity to experiment with approach, form, structure, and style.
