Flash Ficton: The Art of the Short Short Short Story

I’m teaching this workshop at the Jambalaya Writers Conference in Houma, LA, Saturday, April 2nd, 10:30 am.  Make a trip to the bayou and check it out! The conference is being held at the Terrebonne Parish Main Library, 151 Library Drive in Houma, across from the Courtyard Marriott.

You can attend most of the workshops for free, including mine. Workshop topics include the Pains and Pleasures of Writing Historical Fiction, Getting the Word out (publicizing your book), Community Writing, So You Want to Write a Cookbook? and Publishing with a University Press. (plus a bunch more!)

For $35, you also get to hear the keynote speaker, Author Neely Tucker, and lunch.

from the Terrebonne Parish Library Website: ABOUT THE KEYNOTE
“Neely Tucker writes non-fiction by day at the The Washington Post, where he has been a staff writer for fifteen years, and is currently assigned to cover the 2016 U.S. Presidential campaign. He writes fiction by night at his house, where it isn’t frowned upon to have a friendly glass of bourbon by the keyboard.

A seventh-generation Mississippian, he was born in Holmes County, then the poorest county in the poorest state in America. The first newspaper to hire him was the Oxford Eagle, the smallest daily in the state (and possibly the universe). They gave him the much envied job title of “Yalobusha County Correspondent.” He has since worked in more than sixty countries or territories, covering civil wars or violent uprisings in Bosnia, Rwanda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Uganda, Sierra Leone and Liberia, as well as the U.S. Embassy bombing in Kenya. This work inspired crime novelist Elmore Leonard, a longtime friend, to use him as the basis and namesake for a foreign correspondent in “Cuba Libre.” “
