Flash Fiction Boot Camp is a 12-day intensive course for serious writers taught by the Editor-in-Chief of Flash Me Magazine, Jennifer Dawson. She is joined by Flash Me Magazine's Senior Managing Editor, Elizabeth Hull.
Each participant must have three unpublished short stories under 1200 words that they have submitted and had rejected from at least one market prior to enrolling in this course. The goal is to have stories you feel are ready for publication, and proof of that is a collection of rejection letters. If you don't have any rejection letters, start submitting!
Every participant will:
1) have one story edited offline by the instructor
2) have one story reviewed online by peers
3) use one story in a variety of exercises
4) be challenged to write new stories through daily writing exercises.
At the end of each session, selected stories may be published in the Special Features section of Flash Me Magazine. We selected seven boot camp stories from the first session, and five from the second session.

The next session will be February 1-12, 2010. Interested participants must register between December 15th and January 15th.
Participation will be limited to the first fifteen people, so sign up early. Tuition for this session will be $25 US. Discounted rates are available to FMM paid subscribers, to members of the Online Writing Workshop for Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror, and to those who register before December 31, 2009.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
I'll post a reminder in December.
