AMC Online | Workshop: Flash Fiction
In this series of online workshops, we will look at flash fiction and other ultra short literary genres that reflect the quick pace of modern life. We will read and discuss micro stories, essays and other literary forms and try our hands at creative writing exercises together.
Requirements: Upper-level English is expected from participants. Bring a pen, a notebook, and your enthusiasm.
This session of Flash Fiction workshop will be co-hosted by Arina Boyko, a prose and theatre writer based in Moscow. Arina co-founded a literary journal Neznanie that publishes new voices of contemporary Russian literature. She is also an author behind the Telegram-blog Go fiction yourself. You can read her short stories in various anthologies on Bookmate and in the Unost’ Journal. She teaches creative writing at university and elsewhere.
Workshop is hosted by Denis Aksenov and Zamy Altukhanova, AMC Volunteers.
