Flash Mob Writers' Workshop

A one-week program intended to catalyze self-revolutions

Apply from January 1st to January 2nd


Winter Tangerine Review will be holding our inaugural Flash Workshop Program from January 4th to January 10th. The seven day program will focus on creating new work under pressure, experimenting with style and imagery, and critiquing peer work. 

On the same line as WTR's Flash Mob submissions period, the Flash Mob Writers' Workshop aims to catalyze self-revolutions by submerging writers in a highly-intense environment for a very short period of time. We immerse participants in a wide variety of incredible poetry and prose that will, in turn, trigger their own writing. Participants will be given a daily syllabus of assignments such as reading selected works, writing response pieces, as well as pieces off of prompts, writing in limited time frames, and writing with certain restrictions. Critique is a major component of the program, and the ability to respectfully give and receive criticism is necessary in order to succeed (not just in the program, but in life!). 

Please note that since this program is just a week long and there is a lot of material and writing we plan to explore during the program, it will be time-demanding. The deadlines are short. The readings are all incredible, but sometimes long and difficult. This is not a program for those who cannot dedicate their all to it. It is exhausting, but at the end of the week, you will have written pieces you never thought you could.

The Flash Mob Writer's Program will be held from January 4th to January 10th. The entire program will be held online, and is free. Applicants may decide between poetry and prose. The application requires a statement of interest and a creative writing sample of up to five pages of work in poetry, prose or a mixture of both. There is no age limit or requirement, and no experience is necessary. 

Applications are due January 2th, and decisions will be made by January 3rd.
