Flash Fiction Writing Workshop

Get writing at the Library! Authors Chandreyee Lahiri and Malavika Shetty will discuss their own writing journeys, give an introduction to flash fiction (very short stories), and provide a writing prompt. Then everyone will have a chance to write their own piece of flash fiction. Come write with us, whether you’ve been writing for a while or you want to give creative writing a try.

We’ll have writing supplies on hand, though you can also bring a pen and paper or a laptop, or borrow a Library Chromebook.

This will be a hybrid program, so you can participate in person at the Brookline Village Library or online via Zoom. No registration required to attend in person. To register for the Zoom session, click here!

Chandreyee Lahiri is the author of “Dumba Chora,” the 2021 One City One Story all-city read. She earned an honorable mention in the 2020 Boston in 100 Words contest for her piece “Jellies in the Charles.” Learn more about Chandreyee Lahiri’s writing on her website.

Malavika Shetty is a lecturer in the Writing Program at Boston University. Her writing has appeared in publications such as the Kenyon Review, and she is the author of the picture book The Sweetest Mango. Learn more about Malavika Shetty’s work here.

This event is generously sponsored by the Library Trustees.
