Ernest Hemingway compares a story to an iceberg where the largest percentage is submerged beneath the surface. We will learn to make our short shorts the biggest icebergs with just the peak showing.

Bring paper and pen to work on fine tuning your ice bergs. Bring one or two flash stories, typed, double-spaced, and printed out. If we have time we will do some fine editing.
