How to Publish Personal Essays

Intermediate | This one-day introduction focuses on the fundamentals of preparing and submitting essays for publication. We will cover submission basics for literary journals as well as magazines and newspapers. Students do not need to submit work or have previous publications.

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.
