Flash Bash: Reading & Workshop with Two Kathryns

Flash Bash: Reading & Workshop with Two Kathryns In-Person

Join local authors Kathryn Silver-Hajo and Kathryn Kulpa for a special night dedicated to flash fiction on Wednesday, June 28 at 6 pm in the Collis Family Gallery. What is flash fiction, you ask? Flash fiction is a fictional work of extreme brevity (think, very short story) that still offers character and plot development.

Both authors will read from their new books, talk a little about the path to publication, discuss some writing prompts that sparked stories, and then do a flash fiction writing exercise with the audience. Kathryn and Kathryn will also be selling and signing copies of their new books and will have some fun giveaways.

Light refreshments and writing supplies will be provided.
