Open to writers of: Flash Fiction, Flash Nonfiction, Hybrid Forms

Writing doesn’t stop when you pen the final line, or even when you make the final revision. If you’ve written a flash story, and it’s wonderful, you probably want it to be published so you can share it with the world—but first, there’s that pesky process called “submissions.” This class will help writers at all levels untangle the sometimes daunting process of taking your flash and microfiction from private to public. 

 

In this class, you’ll learn: 

· How to format your stories 

· Tips for cover letters and bios 

· Where to find journals looking for flash—and strategies for narrowing down seemingly endless lists 

· How to make sense of rankings and data, and when to ignore them

· Three ways to make editors hate you (and how to make them love you, maybe

· Some strategies to survive rejection
