Course Catalog

Build a Blueprint for Your Book

Introductory/Intermediate | Whether you’re writing fiction or memoir, understanding basic elements of structure is as important as character development and plot. We’ll discuss the elements of structure that can unlock your story’s true focus, to keep you on track and moving forward. We’ll look at examples of these elements in successful novels and movies and use writing prompts and exercises to create some basic tenets for your story-world.

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.
