Most writers don’t actively consider how they use time in their writing, but every story is entrapped in a timeframe that the author has created. It’s a weird catch-22, but the more you understand how to write time, the more control you have over your story.

In this webinar we’ll examine four ways time can be used in fiction: linear, continuous, long, and meticulous time. Although the examples and exercises are rooted in flash fiction, the concepts and strategies that we practice can easily be employed in long stories and novels.

Many examples will be read aloud. There will be generative exercises along the way and time for questions at the end.
