In this interactive workshop, participants will learn about the strategies of compression, and look at ways that flash writing distills narrative, character development, imagery, and dialogue. Innovative examples of flash fiction, micro-essays, and prose poetry will be explored, and participants will experiment wit writing fiery little stories.
Short-Form Creative Writing: A Writer’s Guide and Anthology, co-authored with Stephanie Lenox, is a complete introduction to the art and craft of extremely compressed works of imaginative literature.
Elizabeth Minchilli will show you how to pull together a quick – but very authentic – Venetian cocktail party.

Limited spaces available.
Dorie Greenspan will make two simple dishes from her new book, Everyday Dorie. The first, French cheese puffs, called gougeres, are great party nibbles. The second, the quickly made Ricotta Spoonable, is an herb and cheese mix that goes with everything everyday. Tickets: $15: limited seating.
