All Levels | Learn how to create stories and essays that don’t fit the mold of a classic linear or epiphany narrative. Distinguish structure from shape, identify eight alternative structures, and analyze how they work: lyric, fluent, disruptive, list/ litany, alternating currents, braid, collage, and story-as-house. Each week we’ll read examples, identify the techniques used to create unity and movement, diagram the structure, and draft a short narrative in that structure. Discover what happens when you dare to step outside the classic dramatic pyramid!
Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.
If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.
If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.
If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
