Flash nonfiction is defined by the markets that publish it. Brevity caps out at 750 words, River Teeth’s “Beautiful Things” column limits work to 250 words, and 100 Word Story asks for just that—exactly 100 words. It’s one thing to write short pieces. It’s another to write strong short pieces. How do writers of very short nonfiction compress so much meaning and energy into so few words? How do we make a flash feel complete? And what kind of writing process generates these small written wonders? Each week, we will read and discuss small wonders, and use the readings as a springboard to write our own.
