Flash Fiction Workshop with Ingrid Jendrzejewski

Flash Fiction: Writing the Iceberg's Tip

Think of Icebergs. Besides being the title of a flash by Tania Hershman, this is exactly what this workshop is about: through exercises, discussion and examples, we'll explore how we can craft floes of compressed prose that may look tiny on the page but still have the power to sink ships.

This workshop is suitable for writers of all levels and styles, from absolute beginners to seasoned flashers, to novelists and storytellers and poets who enjoy playing with compression, subtext, and constraint in their own work. Bring pen and paper, a laptop, or your favourite method of recording words, and leave your inner editor at home!

The workshop will take place Sat 13th May, 11.30am-2.15pm in Finchley, North London. Click here, to book your place.

Ingrid Jendrzejewski grew up in Vincennes, Indiana, studied creative writing at the University of Evansville, then physics at the University of Cambridge. She started writing flash fiction in 2014 and has since found homes for around 75 of her pieces in places like Passages North, The Los Angeles Review, The Conium Review, Jellyfish Review, and Flash Frontier. She has won twelve flash fiction competitions, including the Bath Flash Fiction Award and the A Room of Her Own Foundation’s Orlando Prize for Flash Fiction. Her short collection Things I Dream About When I'm Not Sleeping was a runner up for BFFA’s first Novella-in-Flash competition and will be published later this summer. 

She has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, Vestal Review’s VERA Award, and twice for Best Small Fictions, and she has judged several writing contests including this year's National Flash Fiction Day Micro-Fiction Competition.
