Flash Fiction for the Mystery Writer

An introduction to flash fiction for the mystery writer, by author of "Writing Flash:How to Craft & Publish Flash Fiction for a Booming Market" Flash fiction — the art of the ultra-short story of 1,000 words or fewer — is a unique skill-building challenge for any writer.

Fred D. White, professor of writing and literature at Santa Clara University, will give an introduction to flash fiction for the mystery writer, showing how even the shortest story can incorporate the elements of the mystery genre, including suspense, intrigue, and atmosphere. Professor White will also illustrate how writing flash fiction will strengthen your writing skills for tackling novels and other long-form writing projects.

Mr. White received his PhD in English from the University of Iowa, and taught courses in writing and literature in community colleges in Minnesota and, since 1980, at Santa Clara University in Northern California, where he is now professor of English, Emeritus. In 1996 he received the Louis and Dorina Brutocao Award for Teaching Excellence. Professor White has published several books on writing, as well as dozens of stories (many of them flash tales), essays, poems, and plays. He lives with his wife, Therese (an attorney), and their two cats, Emily and Otis, in Rancho Cordova, California.

His books can be found on Amazon:
