1. What We’ll Learn: We’ll take a close look at two of Jayne Anne Phillips’ short-short stories, looking especially at the way Phillips uses highly-charged language and detail under extreme compression to create gripping, poetic flash fictions.

2. The Fun We’ll Have: We’ll employ the lessons as a group to write a collaborative tragicomic serial flash fiction story called “Reply All.”
