All Levels | Explore a variety of writing methods and approaches to create your most heartbreaking works of fiction. We will learn how to draw the reader in and make them fall in love with our characters, and what tangible things we can do to make our stories turn on a necessary dime. With readings from Lorrie Moore, Jesse Ball, Mary Robison, Renee Gladman, and Katherine Faw, we will make our fiction a living, breathing thing. Students can expect very generative writing exercises, a better understanding of how to break down a scene, and the opportunity to be workshopped twice. You will come away from this workshop with a stronger sense of character and narrative, designed to your vision.
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.
