Intermediate | Up in the Air author Walter Kirn says the “hack-screenwriter” has a better sense of storytelling than does the average fiction writer. Why is that? And what is storytelling? We’ll examine Christopher Vogler’s 12 Stages of Storytelling and test the stages on stories we know. Students will have the opportunity to outline and workshop their own stories.
This class takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and sessions can be completed at your own pace throughout the week. An invitation to the class will be emailed to students when class begins.
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.
