Doing Little Writing

We will discuss the fact—yes, fact—that about 90% of our prose and poetry will be better if we can shorten it during the revision process. Leaning on the experience of examining tens of thousands of essays, short stories, and poems during nearly forty years of literary editing, the instructor will offer and illustrate practical ways to tighten nearly any piece of writing.

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.
