Description

Witness great feats of literary art from daring writers around the world: stories crafted in 99 words.Flash fiction is a literary prompt, form, and tool that unites writers in word play. This creative craft hones a writer's skills to write tight stories and explore longer works. It's literary art in thoughtful bites, and the collective stories in this anthology provide an entertaining read for busy modern readers.Writers approach the prompts for their 99-word flash with creative diversity. Each of the twelve chapters in Part One features quick, thought-provoking flash fiction. Later sections include responses to a new flash fiction prompt, extended stories from the original 99-word format, and essays from memoir writers working in flash fiction. A final section includes tips on how to use flash fiction in classrooms, book clubs, and writers groups. CarrotRanch.com is an online literary community where writers can practice craft the way musicians jam. Vol. 1 includes the earliest writings by these global literary artists at Carrot Ranch. Just as Buffalo Bill Cody once showcased the world's most daring riding, this anthology highlights the best literary feats from The Congress of Rough Writers.
