Course Catalog

Kick-Starting the Memoir

All Levels. This is a popular class with proven results. It is for those who are thinking of writing a memoir or who have begun a memoir but are stalled. Glean inspiration and tips from essays by noted memoirists as well as a helpful how-to guidebook, discussed together in class. Required weekly are 300-word essays, which provide various building blocks for memoir. The essays are read aloud and critiqued in class, plus also receive a thorough written critique by the instructor.

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.
