Flash Fiction and Prose Poetry

Summer 2020

Taught By: Kyle Wu

Section: A

CRN: 1957

Credits: 1

The definitions of flash fiction and prose poetry blur into each other, though both are short bursts of poetic prose. This class focuses on how to write and contain (or push against) narrative within these space constraints, how to amp up the poetic nature of prose, and how to generate a substantial amount of new work in a short period of time. While considering published work by authors who excel at using the compression and freedom of these forms, writers in this class get to exercise writing muscles, give and receive editorial feedback, and experiment in a very flexible form to produce their own flash fiction and prose poetry.
