Prose poetry is poetry written in paragraph form. It may be an impression, description, memory or scene almost anything goes! Flash fiction is short short stories, brief narratives which are rarely more than a page in length. The two are often indistinguishable from each other. In this online course, we will read and discuss examples from these related genres, write our own prose poetry and/or flash fiction, and constructively workshop each other’s writing in a supportive environment.
