FLASH FICTION WRITING WORKSHOP
20 AUGUST 1:00-4:00PM
WINTEC CITY CAMPUS
Join author Tina Shaw for this workshop on the craft of writing small. How can you tell a story in only 250-500 words? We’ll look at language, storytelling, world building and how you might push the boundaries of your fiction. You’ll also be writing your own brand-new flash fiction. Come and discover the tremendous universe of writing small.
The workshop costs $25 and afternoon tea will be served. Registration required.
