Moore, founding editor of the popular journal Brevity and prolific and pioneering author of several books of creative nonfiction, including Between Panic and Desire, Dear Mister Essay Writer Guy, and Crafting the Personal Essay, and Tom Hazuka, editor of the anthology Flash Fiction Funny, comes a new book that will make you laugh out loud in 750 words or less! Funny Flash (non)Fiction explores the exploding form of very short creative writing and offers an accessible anthology that’s perfect for individual entertainment or in a classroom setting.
