Course Catalog

Mapping the Illogical Landscape

All Levels | Add the shadows to your fictional world. While we often plot a story from point A to B and onward, we neglect the subtext of space and the dimension of dreams. How do we use detail and objects to reflect what is beautiful and terrifying? How do we chart a character’s emotional journey? By studying stories that expand into large emotional territory from small confined spaces, we will consider ways to enrich the illogical landscape of a story.

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.
