This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | This class will introduce the eight most common craft problems that fiction writers struggle with, including some that they rarely notice — among them, evasive protagonist syndrome, excessive scene disorder, and “Oops, Where’s My Plot?” During class you will learn tools for self-diagnosis and cures for all of these afflictions, and you’ll apply these tools to ten pages of your writing. This class will have a one-hour break for lunch.
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.
