This innovative, one-on-one program combines personalized instruction in the art and craft of flash fiction with an introduction to the writing life: meeting goals, sustaining motivation, finding support, publishing, and more. Based on the mentoring segment of the MFA in creative writing, the program provides support for your project, and you as a writer, from a published writing professional.

The program lasts eight (8) weeks. Depending on your project and needs, we will schedule when you will submit writing and when you will receive it with feedback. Mentoring is suitable for students writing individual pieces or a longer collection of flash fiction (1,000 words or less).

 

Also included:

• THREE (3) ZOOM CALLS:

  Call #1 (30 minutes during week 1), we will discuss your project and goals.

  Call #2 (30 minutes during week 4), review questions or considerations.

  Call #3 (30 minutes during week 8), address remaining questions and set

  up next steps.

• RESOURCES: The mentor will suggest exemplar writing, craft pieces, helpful books, authors to follow, and/or other resources.

• GOAL: Approximately 40 pages of new and/or revised work, a hearty understanding of the flash fiction genre, and a practical introduction to life as a writer.
