Course Catalog

Fiction III

This ten-week course will build on craft learned in Fiction I and II. Students can expect readings from Sing, Unburied, Sing (Jesmyn Ward) and Best American Stories; craft discussions; and frequent workshops. Weekly discussions will include inciting incidents, managing psychic distance, voice, characters, interior worlds, use of detail in world building, character reversals, and more.

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.
