We contributors to The Field Guide To Writing Flash Fiction (from Rose Metal Press) got a nice Valentine's gift. Fiction Writer's Review chose the books they loved in 2009 and Field Guide is among them (the information is under "collections"). See the list of love at http://fictionwritersreview.com/essays/a-valentine-books-we-loved-in-2009 Thank you for loving us!

Here are some stories available on the 'net that I consider outstanding examples of flash fiction. I'm betting you'll enjoy them too. (I'll post links to other outstanding flash fiction at another time.)

John Updike's "Pygmalion"

Aimee Bender's "Appleless"
published in FAIRY TALE REVIEW.

I am very interested in your courses. I was just at Pikes Peak Writer's Conference and they had a great flash fiction contest. You can see my Flash Fiction here: The Seed

Glad you're interested, Sasha. I'm posting about the next course today (here at the blog). Hope you get to take it.
