Product description

Review

"Written in lively prose, and full of terrific prompts and great examples of the form, this book captures all the potential of flash prose pieces and crystallizes it expertly for the reader, whether novice or advanced." Fred G. Leebron, director of writing programs in Charlotte, Roanoke, Gettysburg and Latin America, and Pushcart Prize and O.Henry Awardrecipient


"Flash fiction is a kind of fever-dream of a genre. Melanie Faith teaches writers how to weave these dreams in a book filled with wit, imagination, clarity, and solid, practical advice. If you've ever wanted to write flash fiction, here's a great way to get started." Michael Kobre, Chair, Department of English and Creative Writing at Queens University of Charlotte and co-founder of the Queens MFA Program in Creative Writing


"Melanie's creative primer on flash fiction and nonfiction writing is entertaining, instructive and inspiring. In A Flash is our own private tutor in understanding, using and mastering this exciting writing genre. Loved how her
prompts and exercises got me to the page right away." Mari L. McCarthy, International Best-Selling Author, "Journaling Power: How To Create The Happy, Healthy Life You Want To Live!" and founder of www.CreateWriteNow.com
