THE FLASH FICTION CHALLENGE: Apparently Gay
Have you always wanted to write a short story, but don’t know how? Do you want to brush up on your wordsmithing skills? Have you been meaning to get that story in your head on the page?
Now is (apparently) the time!
In partnership with Hudson Pride and the Jersey City Free Public Library, Jersey City Writers has transformed one of our most popular events, Flash Fiction Friday, in order to focus on LGBTQ+ community outreach.

This unique series of free workshops will challenge emerging writers to hone their literary skills and perform their work live online.
