Flash Fiction workshop with James Patrick Kelly on Thursdays the 9th and 16th of January at 6:30 PM

You’ve always wanted to write stories, but maybe you’re a little bit intimidated? Or haven’t got the time? Have you considered writing Flash Fiction? A Flash Fiction story is usually about 1,000 words long – that’s just a little over three typed pages. Nottingham resident James Patrick Kelly, who teaches Creative Writing at the University of Southern Maine, will conduct a free beginner’s workshop in this popular short-short form on January 8th at 6:30 PM. Using examples and exercises, Jim will show you how to build a story in just a thousand words, even if you’ve never written fiction before. January marks the kickoff of the New Hampshire Writers Project annual Three Minute Fiction Slam, a statewide competition for Flash Fiction writers, that runs through March. With the tools you’ll get in Jim’s workshop , you can write your Flash Fiction and gather again at the library on January 16th at 6:30 PM for a reading and no-stress feedback session. Who knows? You may be inspired to enter the Three Minute Fiction Slam!
