Course Catalog

Memory and Character

Embedded in the stories we write are numerous smaller stories—the ones characters tell themselves about the lives they’ve lead and the people they’ve known. We will examine memory as a vital tool for character development, and we will look at the ways that memory can influence nearly every other element of a work of fiction, including structure and plot.

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.
