Course Catalog

Get Published: Your Short Pieces Find a Home (IN-PERSON)

Introductory | You want to submit a short story, essay, creative nonfiction, poem, or kid lit. Where? You do not need to have finished something to understand the publishing industry and your place in it: genre; researching magazines and journals; payment; query letters; and submissions, rejections, and rebounds. Through discussion, examples, and exercises, students will develop a solid understanding of the publishing industry, a draft of a query letter, and a list of 15–20 magazines to submit their work.

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.
