Online Class | Strange Stories: Putting the Uncanny in Your Fiction

All Levels | The unusual is thriving in contemporary storytelling. A man made famous for playing a vampire on TV is haunted by a real ghost; something is wrong at a family’s new house. Maybe art is imitating our strange times. Considering writers such as Kelly Link and A.S. Byatt, we will find how the strange can get us closer to the truth. Plan to draft two stories and discuss one of those stories with the class. This course takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and classes can be done at your own pace throughout the week.

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.
