We aim to remove the barriers which prevent people expressing themselves, using memory, sensory experience, observation and discussion.
We focus on Flash Fiction, with a view to participants contributing to ‘Flash Dances’, the new anthology to be published by Paradise Press. Flash Fiction attracts a lot of interest these days - tiny polished stories which create a complete world in miniature, in 600, 300 or even as few as 100 words. For new writers, the form of Flash Fiction is approachable and does not require nearly so much commitment as writing, say, a full-length novel. Nevertheless it is highly disciplined and every word has to tell. Participants will also have the chance to read their work at a series of library events, if they want, and to enter a Flash-writing competition judged by professional authors.
