In this series of online and offline workshops, we will look at flash fiction and other ultra short literary genres that reflect the quick pace of modern life with its emotions. We will read and discuss micro stories, essays and other literary forms and try our hands at simple creative writing exercises together.
The workshop on April 9 will be co-hosted by a special guest — Mira Opukhovskaia, a winner of flash fiction writing contest «Good Night, Moscow», who will present her story, talk about her writing experience, and share her writing prompt with a group.
Requirements: Upper-level English is expected from participants. Bring a pen, a notebook, and your enthusiasm.
Workshop is hosted by Denis Aksenov and Zamy Altukhanova, AMC Volunteers, and Mira Opukhovskaia.
Denis Aksenov is a founder of Funky Chekhov’s Society that aims at keeping up your English in a creative way while having some fun together. He is a current student of University of Massachusetts Liberal Arts program.
Zamy Altukhanova is a literary enthusiast who loves reading books, discussing them, and writing something that can become a … book! Zamy holds an MA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Literary and Cultural Studies.
Mira Opukhovskaia is a Media and Arts student at Tampere University, currently studying game design and development.
