Fiction in a Flash (INCC 123.1)

Recent/Current Offerings

Syllabus / Public content Section Term Instructor
INCC 123 02 January 2016


Flash fiction offers the punch of a novel in a fraction of the time. In 1000 words or less, flash fiction can depict complex characters, intricate plots, and evocative settings ? all the crucial elements of long- form fiction. INCC 123.1 teaches students the rudimentary elements of writing as they craft their own pieces of flash fiction and micro-fiction. Through class discussion, writing exercises, and workshopping, students will explore key aspects of the writing process: reading and finding inspiration; crafting, critique, and revision; and publication.


Each class will be offered in a workshop format which is standard practice for creative writing courses. The final week of the class will have an additional hour for presentation of student work.
