WORKSHOP 14: Great Big Little: The Unlimits of Flash Fiction
With John Gould
Fairmont Chateau Whistler
2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. PDT | Online $10
“A really good short-short,” wrote John L’Heureux, “is a story we can’t help reading fast, and then re-reading, and again, but no matter how many times we read it, we’re not quite through it yet.” Funny or dramatic, preposterous or profound, the very short story is an increasingly vibrant literary form. In this workshop, we’ll explore approaches and techniques that make it a fitting vessel for your most challenging ideas. John Gould is the author of The End of Me – a collection of 56 sudden stories about mortality – and of two previous collections in the same form, including Kilter, a finalist for the Giller prize.
