Flash Fiction with Nuala O’Connor , a three hour workshop 

Flash fiction should sting like good poetry and have heart like a good story. By definition a short form, in flash every word is essential and excess words and ideas are pared away. Suitable for those who already write some fiction or poetry, this workshop will guide participants through practical theory on how to write effective flash and there will be in-class writing exercises. We will look at sample stories from accomplished flash writers and explore outlets for completed stories. Handouts will be provided 

Nuala O’Connor lives in Co. Galway. In 2019 she won the James Joyce Quarterly competition to write the missing story from Dubliners, ‘Ulysses’. Her fourth novel, Becoming Belle, was recently published to critical acclaim in Ireland, the US and the UK. She is currently writing a bio-fictional novel about Nora Barnacle, wife and muse to James Joyce. Nuala is editor at new flash e-zine Splonk. www.nualaoconnor.com

Nuala has won many flash and short fiction awards including the Dublin Review of Books Flash Fiction Prize, the Gladstone Library Flash Prize, RTÉ radio’s Francis MacManus Award, the Cúirt New Writing Prize, the inaugural Jonathan Swift Award and the Cecil Day Lewis Award. www.nualaoconnor.com
