Course Catalog

Character Actors

Actors have a big bag of tricks for creating a believable character, many of which may be useful to the writer of fiction or memoir. Thinking like an actor can help you create characters that leap from the page. Show up with anything from the vaguest sketch to a fleshed-out character whose mind you still haven’t cracked and leave with a character ready to move your story forward. We’ll look at tools for describing ourselves and the people we know, as well as for generating the people who populate our fiction.

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.
