Eugene Willamette Writers Presents

The Joy of Flash: How Short Writing Can Jump Start Your Creative Practice with Miriam Gershow

Do you feel stuck? Are you missing that spark? Join Miriam Gershow at the Eugene Public Library on May 23rd, both online and in-person, to bring back the joy. Doors open at 6PM and meeting starts at 6:15PM.

Miriam Gershow

In this workshop, we will read and write several pieces of flash fiction as a way to loosen up your creative muscle, get ideas on the page quickly, and find the spark in your writing. This workshop is for new and experienced writers.

About Miriam Gershow

Miriam Gershow’s debut novel, The Local News (Spiegel & Grau), was hailed as “unusually credible and precise” and “deftly heartbreaking” by The New York Times, as well as “an accomplished debut” (Publisher’s Weekly) with a “disarmingly unsentimental narrative voice,” (Kirkus Reviews). Her debut short story collection, Survival Tips, is forthcoming from Propeller Books in 2024.
