Course Catalog

Memoir Writing Intensive

Introductory / Intermediate | The three days will be filled with lecture, discussion, writing prompts, brainstorming activities designed to talk you into the heart of your work as a writer, and workshops of participants’ writing. Lecture/discussion topics will include: voice and vision, inviting the reader into the work, narrative arc, thematic drive, collage techniques, scene building, the publication process, and how to make the most of your writing time. There will be an hour-long lunch break each session.

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.
