What are flash memoirs?

Akin to flash fiction, flash memoirs are very short stories … personal stories … our momentous, funny, ancestral, inspiring, tragic, steamy, poignant, scathing, blue, daring stories.  The definition varies, but flash stories are usually 300-2000 words, as opposed to short stories which are 2000-20,000 words. Flash Memoirs are too short to be the entire story, but they are complete stories, with all the characteristics of memoir. Using flash writing techniques, flash memoirs are jam-packed, revealing, often surprising, and an engaging way to tell your life story.
