All Levels | We’ll examine how to build and revise plots for short stories and novels that grow organically out of a character’s choices, context, and desires. In doing so, we’ll encourage narratives that are rich in drama—not melodrama. While this is a class focused around student work of short stories and/or novels, we will also examine published work that combines interior depth and exterior circumstance to thrilling effect.
This class will skip the class meeting on 1/23. The instructor will work out a make-up session for that class with students.
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.
