Writing a Flash Fiction Emulation: Using your analysis and flash fiction “exercise,” write a new story in
1000 words. It should be a complete story and the technique you are emulating should be obvious. For
example, if you wrote your analysis about the use of dialogue, your emulation should rely heavily on
dialogue and accomplish a similar result. The theme and content should not be the same as your flash
AFTER COMPLETING THE EMULATION:
Presenting the Analysis and Emulation: You’ll have fifteen minutes to present your analysis in class and
fifteen minutes to receive workshop feedback on the emulation. First, you’ll remind us of the flash fiction
you chose. Introduce us to the author and share their background. You may choose to read it out loud or
to read excerpts that demonstrate technique. You’ll teach us your analysis, and you should be prepared as
a professor would. A visual presentation is helpful. Consider how you learn best and then teach that way.
Reading your analysis or simply summarizing it for us is not impressive. After you present, I’ll ask you to
read 1-2 sentences from your emulation. Your classmates will share their workshop feedback. You’ll
receive written feedback from them, too (Just let me know what style you used in writing the emulation and several key factors for me to present it to my class)
