Desire as Craft

All Levels | Desire is the experience of possibility, the burn of anticipation. Longing is the singular vision of what you can’t have. We often conflate the two but only one creates room for a more radical imagination. This generative class will explore desire as a craft element to bring more intimacy, urgency, and possibility into your prose.

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.
