Finding Your Story

What is this thing we call a story? Why do stories exist? Are they authentic and vital or artificial and passe? By what alchemy do our thoughts, memories, images, and fabrications become true narrative, powerful enough to transport and change a reader? Bring your questions, ideas, and written work, and I’ll offer some new theories, approaches, and exercises, along with fresh revision and workshopping techniques designed to help embolden us to tell the stories we want and mean to tell.

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.
