write a flash narrative in the genre of your choice (ex. romantic fiction, horror fiction, memoir, humorous nonfiction, etc.). Remember that your purpose is, at least in part, to evoke emotion by creating or re-creating an experience through words. Be detailed and use specific examples. Whatever your subject, be sure to include one major scene that transports your reader to a specific point in time. Utilize the writing techniques of sensory detail, dialogue, and conflict-driven action. Think about your audience and how you will connect to them.
What main idea or theme do you want to communicate? What dominant emotion(s) do you want the reader to feel?
How do you want your audience to react to your story?
- Flash narratives should be no longer than 1,000 words.
- Must include at least one fully executed scene that effectively employs narrative techniques.
