AWP Thursday Event: Flash (Nonfiction) to the Future
March 22, 2022 § 3 Comments
If you are attending AWP this week, please drop by Flash (Nonfiction) to the Future: A Speculative Brevity Reading on Thursday morning at 10:35 am, in Room 124 of the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
Deesha Philyaw, Natalie Lima, Ander Monson and Ira Sukrungruang will discuss future possibilities for the flash nonfiction form and genre hybrids just now emerging, along with brief readings and audience discussion. Brevity’s founding editor Dinty W. Moore will moderate.
With the popularity of flash rocketing forward, it is a good time to explore what’s next for this incredibly rich genre, why it is so perfect for the classroom, how it helps us write about trauma and other difficult subjects, the overlap with poetry, and the growing body of memoirs in flash.
Following the panel/discussion, authors from The Best of Brevity anthology wll be signing copies of the book at the Rose Metal Press Table in the Bookfair, Table 550. The signing should start around noon (depending on how long it takes us to walk over.)
See you in Philly!
This looks great, but sadly (or not) I will be signing my novel from 11 to 1 in the Book Fair. Maybe I can scoot over and get a signed copy of The Best of Brevity! Looks like an awesome AWP, my first.
An increasingly online era and this isn’t available online? As a memoir writer, I am very interested in flash non-fiction. I have tried my hand at some 100-word flash fiction and found it fun and believe it is a great exercise. Can’t wait to see how this goes forward.
Will this be available on zoom too? Enjoy Jennifer Lang
