Talking flash in San Antonio

sanfordpicI’m giving a talk Thursday, June 4, in front of the San Antonio Writers Guild on writing and selling flash fiction.

What’s flash fiction? The short answer is that it’s about a third to half of what I write. The longer answer is that it’s fiction of extreme brevity, usually under 1,000 words.

The flash form’s been around a long time, but it’s enjoying a resurgence as more fiction magazines go online and feature shorter pieces. I’ll talk about how to write effective flash fiction, where to sell it and flash’s relevance to sf/f/h writers.

The guild meeting takes place at 7:30 p.m. at Bethany Congregational Church, 500 Pilgrim Drive in San Antonio. It’s free and open to members and non-members of the Writers Guild. Click here for more info.
