Course Catalog

In the Beginning Was the End

Raymond Carver’s advice was to “get in, get out.” But how? We’ll explore how to start stories and novels — as well as, to a lesser extent, poems and creative nonfiction — and how to finish them. While we aren’t going to ignore what’s in the middle, we will primarily be preoccupied with openings and closings and the question of whether or not the end of a creative work has to be present in the beginning.

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.
