Character is an element of fiction that is often discussed in writing workshops. But there’s a difference between creating character studies or sketches and employing fully-realized characters in the service of a piece of fiction. Through brief examples from novels and short stories as well as in-class exercises, character essentials will be discussed and explored as a means for writing fiction that feels both authentic and authentically populated.
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.
