What you'll learn in this kids writing class:

Flash fiction and flash nonfiction tell dynamic and compelling stories in a flash -- usually between 400 and 1,000 words. Writing less might sound better than writing more, but sharing a story or and idea that feels complete and interesting in, say, 200 words requires tight control of our writing. We will PLAY with structure and sentences. We will imitate and experiment. We will read. We will discuss. We will write.

At the end of this course, you will have a finished piece or two, ideas for future work,  and, I hope, more confidence in your writing.

Required materials: a notebook and a pen or pencil.

Feel free to bring a snack.

Refund Policy
We strongly encourage you to pre-register to ensure a space in class. We keep class sizes small to allow personalized instruction and a quality experience for participants.

CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS

Classes may be canceled when enrollment minimums are not reached. Classes, workshops and special events not meeting enrollment minimums will usually be canceled two to three days before the start date. A minimum enrollment of 4-5 students is usually required for a class to run. Workshops may need at least 10 enrolled to run a workshop. Please register early to ensure your preferred class will run. Students will be notified if classes are canceled and will receive a full refund.

Tuition is refundable for all classes and workshops; minus a processing fee of $30 if we are notified at least TWO WEEKS prior to the class start date. Cancellations within one week of class start dates receive a 50% refund. Parents/students are responsible for notifying CourseHorse (at [email protected]) that they wish to drop a class or workshop; not attending class/workshop does not constitute an official withdrawal from class or cancellation fees. There are no refunds once a class has begun.

Workshops under $25 and Kids Night Out are non-refundable. We suggest you sell or give your ticket to another student. The new student is responsible for registering their name with teachers upon arrival.

MISSED CLASSES
If a teacher needs to cancel a class, they will make arrangements with students to make up the class at the end of the schedule. The teacher will be in touch with students/parents as soon as they know they need to change the schedule. 

CANCELLATIONS DUE TO WEATHER
The Milton Art Center follows the Milton Public Schools schedule for inclement weather cancellations. If the MPS are closed, the MAC will close. We will extend the class schedule to add in the canceled class.
