Flash Fiction or 420 Character Short Stories

A writing assignment for your students:

Inspired by Lou Beach’s 420 Character Short Stories, students write mini short stories, written as Facebook updates, when there was a 420 character limit including spaces and punctuation.

A word to the wise, Lou Beach says, “Throw out your garbage.”  A great way to help teach young people about crafting clear and concise writing.   Following his lead, I will make this blog post short.

Happy Holidays!!!
