FLASH/DAZZLE/GLEAM: A Short Form Writing Workshop

Led by Hannah VanderHart, this workshop is an introduction to flash forms: fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry. Participants will receive a packet of flash literature and together we will look at contemporary online journals specializing in flash forms. We will also be doing some flash exercises, and you will leave with your own brilliant flash in hand.

Hannah VanderHart co-runs the Little Corner Poetry Reading Series at Duke University. She has her MFA from George Mason University and is currently at Duke completing her dissertation on collaborative women's poetry in the Renaissance. She has poetry and reviews published and forthcoming in The Kenyon Review, Poetry Northwest, The Greensboro Review, Thrush Poetry Journal and elsewhere. Her chapbook, What Pecan Light, is forthcoming from Bull City Press, and she is the Reviews Editor at EcoTheo Review. More at: and twitter @hmvanderhart.
