Novel Approach 8 – Flash Fiction

Hosted by James Sodon with guest Maxine Beach

James and Maxine discuss the Neurotica author’s experience writing and teaching “Flash Fiction”, Smoke-long, or “short short” stories. Learn how these compressed formats are great for reaching more readers and refining a writer’s craft. A brief digression into digital media DRM and copyright leaves the hosts wishing to distribute copies of Fahrenheit 451 to select school boards. There are also great short storytelling formats in other media, including the 48 Hour Film Festival, the 24 Hour Plays (on soon in Memphis, and inspired by the 24-Hour Comics Day). Reading recommendation: The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros.
