Course Catalog

Time in Fiction

How do you write across multiple time periods in a single piece of fiction? How do you write across the span of years, decades or centuries? How do you write about the past in the present day and what techniques can you use to write about the future? This workshop seeks to provide practical, craft-based solutions to the questions of time and plotting in fiction. Please come with specific issues or problems from your own manuscripts to discuss.

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.
