The town of Casperia, Italy

Do you dream of uninterrupted days to write in beautiful locations? Do you long to meet, be mentored by, and network with other writers? Are you enamored with flash fiction and want to learn more or refine your work?

We give professional and aspiring writers, struggling to create amidst the everyday demands of life, the gift of time, community, instruction, and the opportunity to reconnect with your own imagination and sense of possibility so you can confidently bring the work inside you to fruition.

Our flash fiction retreats are simple and affordable—expect good food, fresh air, inspiring locations, lots of encouragement, focused guidance, and the opportunity to make lifelong colleagues and friends. The retreats feature generative classes, workshops, craft talks, and one-on-one mentoring sessions as well as plenty of individual writing time. All activities and classes are optional and participants can create a schedule that is supportive and nurturing to their process while finding just the right amount of motivation, guidance, and camaraderie.We want to make it as easy for you to say yes! as possible.

Nancy Stohlman and Kathy Fish have 25 years of combined experience writing, publishing, and teaching flash fiction, and they are bringing their expertise together in a new venture–to gather serious writers of flash fiction together in amazing locations in order to generate ideas, friendships, craft lessons, and give you the precious gift of time and inspiration for your writing.
