Electrify Your Writing: Flash Fiction/Prose Poem Workshop with Angela Rydell
Three Wednesdays in March: the 9th, 23rd & 30th, 6:00pm-8:30pm
Some call prose poems and flash fiction “kissing cousins.” The genres share compressed length and highly charged language, though spotlight plot and character differently. What are those differences? They may be in the eye of the beholder (i.e. editor) more than writer. Week one we’ll compare and contrast the forms. Week two: dialogue do’s and don’ts. Week three: found experiments (transforming to-do lists, manuals, letters, and more). Analyze work by published writers, peer-critique stories/prose poems weekly (submit one piece of up to 750 words per session), and take home prompts to charge up your writing in a flash.
Where: Angela's house, 217 E Sunset Ct, Madison, WI; Cost: $150. Limit: 6. To register, and/or for more details, email Angela at firstname.lastname@example.org.
7–8:30 pm: Madison Poetry Tribe.

ranting. Bring a poem to share, workshop your poetry, do creative
writing exercises and discuss your writing process. Let's work toward
building an even more vibrant poetry community in Madison! Meets
