Intensive Workshop

As a teacher, Lidia Yuknavitch is known for her collaborative approach that breaks from inherited workshop rituals and traditions. This workshop will be a shared process that values participant collaboration just as much as the workshop leaders’. There are no ‘masters’ or ones ‘who know.’ Just writers who know some secret passageways imparting their knowledge onto you. This workshop will lead you into new and unknown territories from which you can make art.

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.
