Not A Flash In The Pan
Want to write short stories? ‘Not A Flash in The Pan’ is for you. Flash fiction is great, but the short story gives you time to develop your theme, character, and plot. It lets them breathe and live. We'll look at how to craft a piece from beginning to end and work on different genres, perspectives and development techniques. The short story is a perfect stepping stone to novellas and novels. If you have the commitment and time, then sign up. This club will look at producing work of publishable length for anthologies and magazines on the 1500 - 7000 words range, as well as shorter exercises to build up to the full story (such as opening lines, paragraphs, character description, backstory, dialogue and so on).

As far as line length is concerned we will be using the terms in the illustration. Don't worry if you don't know what they mean. Join the club and you will find out eventually.
