Our Stories to Tell: A Memoir Writing Workshop

All Levels | This class is for students who wish to write—or are already writing—a memoir. Students will read memoirs by established writers such as The Woman Warrior, as well as selections from the teacher’s own work, Mostly True. Students will study the techniques used in memoir, including the use of effective dialogue and tense shifts.

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.
