Online Courses and In-Person Flash Fiction Writing Retreats by Meg Pokrass

Online Courses

New workshop beginning Jan 5th, 2019! If interested in my next 2-week workshop, Surreal Flash Fiction, Jan 5th-19th, 2019,  please e-mail me here.

My prompts were recently showcased by the Bath Flash Fiction Award, which will give you an idea of what to expect! My workshop participants’ stories have been published in places like The New York Times, Smokelong Quarterly, Wigleaf, Jellyfish Review, Cincinatti Review, formercactus, Atticus Review, Matchbook, and many more.

Check here for updates and for announcements of new workshops. See past participants’ “success stories” (published stories started in my workshops from 2018).

The workshops are conducted on Facebook, in a ‘secret’ dedicated group. Over a 2-week period, participants will receive original exercises created by me.  These exercises will get your creative juices flowing!

Feedback is very important for a writer at any stage of his/her journey, so finished stories are shared to the group. My only rules for critiquing are that we emphasize the positive aspects of each other’s work, additionally offering one or two ideas for improvement. The workshops are a safe and supportive environment, in which to experiment and grow.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a master writer at the top of the form, there is a place for everyone.
