Finishing Your Book Online

All Levels | This is a class for anyone struggling with a book. Although that first sprint of 50 pages into a book—either novel or nonfiction—can be very exhilarating, it’s hard to sustain until the end. Sooner or later, you’re likely to find yourself in a creative ditch, wheels spinning. We’ll take a look at when to revise and when not to revise; what questions are productive, and what questions are counter-productive. We’ll seek out ways to re-invigorate ourselves for much more writing. The final class will be a tutorial of the business of finding an agent and/or publisher for your book.
This class takes place online via our partner, WetInk, and can be completed at your own pace each week.

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.
