All Levels | In this class, we will explore the possibilities of form in fiction, using structural resources such as Jane Alison’s Meander, Spiral, Explode: Design and Pattern in Narrative along with the more traditional (and perhaps archetypal) hero’s (or heroine’s) quest that engages Joseph Campbell’s much-discussed model. As part of our exploration, each of the first three weeks will include readings in form as well as fiction along with a brief craft assignment. During the latter three weeks, writers will submit a story draft or a novel chapter-in-progress for discussion. We will read work by a wide range of writers including Peter Orner, Julia Wickersham, Sarah Shun-lien Bynum, and Helen Oyeyemi.
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.
