Course Catalog

Prize-Winning Stories

We will read six prize-winning stories from 2014 and 2015 from the O’Henry, Pushcart, and Best American anthologies. We will explore and discover trends that we notice or are broken, along with all the aspects that make these stories grab our hearts (or not). Rather than seeking to imitate, we will use this as an exploration of our own tastes, and what we, as readers and writers, are being told is great writing.

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.
