“Flash fiction is a work of extreme brevity that still offers character and plot development.”—Wikipedia

John Einarsen, lead editor of the Kyoto Journal, is also a photographer of note, known for his evocative renderings of everyday objects mostly overlooked. He has just finished an exhibition for Kyotographie+ called “The Universe at my Feet” in Kyoto. 

John will introduce his work with slides, and provide photographs which participants will use as the basis for flash fiction. Since there are various kinds of flash fiction, in this workshop there will be a tentative limit of 1–3 paragraphs or 300 words (shorter is also fine!). Participants may write by hand or on tablets, etc. Any number of fiction passages may be written as time permits.

Afterward, we will repair to Spring Valley Brewery (a short walk away) for craft beer, dinner and sharing our writing from 5:00. to 7:30 p.m. Pay as you order.

RSVP by June 6 (Wed.) to Richard Sadowsky: SWET Kansai
