Course Catalog

Master Class: Finding Your Perspective

We will focus on understanding our own particular perspective as writers. We’ll discuss how to construct characters by writing through their eyes, and how writers from Baudelaire to William Carlos Williams and Saul Bellows revealed their characters by isolating the way they “see” the world.

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.
