Night Parrot Press’ flash fiction workshops offer a fresh and exciting approach to writing. With its compact parameters, flash fiction is an accessible and immediate form for writers of all ages and experience levels who might feel intimidated or restricted by traditional and longer forms of writing and storytelling.
In this fun and condensed lunch-time session led by Laura Keenan, you will learn what flash fiction is, what makes a compelling flash story, and how to edit your story to make it diamond-sharp.
Bring your own writing materials and we’ll provide the prompts!
Tickets are $5.00.
Companion card holders are welcome, please contact us on (08) 9328 1443 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to organise this.
If you are experiencing financial hardship, you can contact us to arrange entry at no charge on (08) 9328 1443 or at email@example.com.
Please note that the Story Lounge does not have a bathroom but visitors can use the public toilets across Hay Street Mall at the Enex Building.
Story Lounge would not be possible without the Humich Group who donated the Hay Street Mall shopfront to activate the CBD for local writers and artists, as well as financial support from the City of Perth and Australia Council for the Arts.
