Course Catalog

Online Class | Exercises in Style

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | Raymond Queneau’s book Exercises in Style presents us with 99 different ways to tell the same story. But is it really the same story? The language we use, the elements we choose to highlight, the order in which we tell things . . . Can it all change, shape, and create an entirely different narrative? Using this book as a reference, we will experiment and play with style variations in order to find new narrative voices, enrich our characters, and expand our imaginations as writers. This class is for anyone who wants to discover completely new ways of storytelling.

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.
