There’s an art to writing a (very) short story, one that includes a captivating opening, a dynamic middle, and a surprising ending—often using fewer words than we’re including in this session description. We’re fortunate that several contributors to the new anthology Flash Fiction America: 73 Very Short Stories hail from right here in the Bay Area—and we’ve brought them together for a big celebration of small stories. Patricia Quintana Bidar, K-Ming Chang, Grant Faulkner, Molly Giles, Nicole Simonsen, and Kara Vernor will read their stories reading and talk about what it takes to write fantastic flash fiction in a showcase hosted by Kirstin Chen and Jane Ciabattari, co-hosts of the Flash Fiction Collective reading series.
