Remixing the Classics: Writing New Flash Fiction from Old Stories
Let’s be honest. Writing flash fiction comes with a different set of obstacles than writing long-form fiction. The biggest of those obstacles, though, is finding a constant source of story ideas. But what if there were already story ideas around you that you could use to keep your pen moving/fingers typing?
In this OnDemand webinar, award-winning writer Ran Walker teaches you how to find and mine ideas for your flash fiction. He shows you how to take stories in the public domain and “remix” them into new stories. Ran also shows you how to put your own spin on these ideas and make them truly yours.
Ran Walker (he/him) is the author of twenty-five books. He is the winner of the Indie Author Project's 2019 National Indie Author of the Year Award (selected by judges from Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, IngramSpark, St. Martin's Press, and Writer's Digest), the 2019 Black Caucus of the American Library Association Best Fiction Ebook Award, the 2018 Virginia Indie Author Project Award for Adult Fiction, and the 2021 Blind Corner Afrofuturism Microfiction Contest. He is also an Assistant Professor of English and Creative Writing at Hampton University and teaches with Writer's Digest University.
