Flash Memoir Writing Workshop

Learn how to transform a memory or experience from your life into the focused art of flash memoir (under 1000 words) with writer and editor Melisse Gelula. This is a nonfiction writing workshop for adults 18 years and up. No formal writing experience necessary!

Together we’ll read contemporary examples of flash memoir, identifying the tools writers use to achieve their short, sweet—and emotionally rich—stories.

Attendees will begin a draft of their flash memoir in the workshop and receive ideas and motivation for continuing independently at home. If time allows, some attendees may have the opportunity to share their new work.
Please bring a pen and notebook.

This workshop welcomes the participation and partnership of Tusten Social Sage Sessions.
