The SmokeLong Winter Workshop

Module One (Jan 3-16) — Drafting Flash: Five Techniques (Christopher Allen)

In this module we’ll experiment with five drafting techniques, each a unique way to approach the flash narrative. We’ll disrupt the way we draft and the way we think about writing the form.

Module Two (Jan 17-30) — The Heart of the Matter (Helen Rye)

Are you looking to find that extra layer that takes stories deeper? Conscious that there’s something missing, but not sure what? You have interesting concepts, interesting sentences, and yet…? We’ll work on developing stories with that elusive element: heart.

Module Three (Jan 31-Feb 13) — Playing with Time (Hananah Zaheer)

In this module we will play with time—condensing stories into seconds, or stretching between weeks and months, perhaps a lifetime. We will experiment with form to disrupt forward movement and travel back and forth through time, using pace, rhythm, speed to maintain the urgency and energy necessary for flash.

Final Week (Feb 14-20) — Editing Flash (All three workshop leaders)

If you would like to discuss this workshop with us before you purchase it, please send an email to editor@smokelong.com and we’ll be happy to chat.
