Intro to Writing Memoir: Part III Structuring and Sharing Your Stories

Introductory | This eight-week course will focus on methods for structuring your personal narratives so that they are powerful, unified, and publishable. The course will offer strategies for improving your stories’ impact, flow, and coherence, and give you plenty of opportunities to practice those strategies. You will also be provided with resources for finding and selecting places to submit your work for publication, skills for formatting your work and communicating with publications, and tips for preparing to share your stories with the world.

Registration for the one-day Publishing Intensive, May 8, 2021, is included in the fee for this course.

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.
