Flash is a great stepping stone to writing fiction, but its brevity is deceptive. In its range and variety, flash fiction presents many challenges:
⁃ How do you create dramatic urgency despite the low word count?
⁃ Can you make the reader laugh and cry within a short space?
⁃ How do you create a story arc within flash fiction?
⁃ Is it possible to generate workable flash pieces in a short span of time?
This online weekend workshop will teach you how to write flash fiction and will be taught by Damyanti Biswas, author of You Beneath Your Skin. Damyanti will facilitate a supportive and encouraging environment, which would be useful for beginning and intermediate fiction writers. This class is based on the belief that a supportive environment allows us to take creative risks, that we can be our own editors, and our best work often comes from play.

“Thank you so much for the class, I had the best festive weekend. I came across Kuzhali Manickavel's work for the first time in the fiction appreciation class by Bound. Every time I read an unforgettable short story, I am reminded of how potent the form of the short story is.”
“Thanks for the workshop, Michelle! I loved how you curated the sessions (reading together and discussing the writing - I found it very useful). The selection you picked was also excellent in terms of themes, writing styles, authors from different regions, etc. The workshop introduced me to a bunch of new writers and short stories of known writers. I’m not too exposed to literary fiction journals and the short story examples you shared (such as Whore by Kuzhali) have inspired me to read them.”
“Bound India’s How to Read Like a Writer facilitated by Tara Khandelwal helped me analyse the works of different authors thoroughly and offered a new perspective on the various aspects of storytelling. I think this workshop is very important for aspiring writers because it helps you hone your skills and experiment with different styles. ”
“I've thoroughly enjoyed the sessions hosted by Michelle and Tara. Their knowledge and sheer love for books and literature make the classes interesting and interactive. I've had the opportunity to get such different and intriguing perspectives on varying topics from them and aspiring writers. It's been an enriching experience in a short span of time. The topics for sessions/workshops are intelligently chosen, providing ample opportunities to participants to share ideas, theories and the like. Analysis, reasoning, styling, and editing are some of the active discussions that occur with like-minded folks. Thus far, I've attended sessions on How to Edit Your Book (Tara), How to Read Like A Writer (Tara), and a 2-Week Advanced Fiction Class (Michelle). Looking forward to many more and a long-lasting relationship with Bound. Happy to have found you. ”
““Bound, Bound, Bound... I have boundless love for you all. Please keep designing courses on the building blocks of writing and different genres. I am hooked, you kept me sane during this intense lockdown with your gentle instructors and deep content. Love you all, keep soaring.” ”
