Sudden Fiction! Flash Fiction! Where Did It Come From? And What Is It?

A panel with Ron Carlson, James Thomas, Robert Shapard, and Chris Merrill

Saturday, June 8, 2013

7:30pm at Alta Lodge’s Deep Powder Room

Sudden Fiction! Flash Fiction! Where Did It Come From? And What Is It? The first answer is Utah, to which the panel’s editors and authors are all connected in a variety of vital ways, both personal and professional. There is no notorious gang here, but there may yet be a whispered conspiracy of literary invention. They may confess what they know and talk about it now. “Flash Fiction” is now prevalent in creative writing classrooms and workshops, regarded as a literary genre and the topic conferenced about, defined on Wikipedia, and the phrase featured on any number of Google pages. But what does it all really mean? Perhaps there is no suitable answer, but this panel will tackle the question anyway.

Panel Moderator: David Kranes


This panel is free and open to the public. This program  has received funding from the Utah Humanities Council (UHC). UHC offers funding to empower individuals and groups in Utah to improve their communities through active engagement in the humanities.
