Intermediate/Advanced | We will explore how to take a short story manuscript and make it publication-ready. In addition to workshop, the course will address a range of questions that typically arise during revision. Where does the story start? What is the story about and how does the story serve or distract from this meaning? We’ll work on crafting scenes, shaping characters, building tension, creating setting, sharpening dialogue, and editing prose. We will also reserve time to discuss the ins and outs of publication, including how (and when) to find journals, submit work, and enter contests.
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.
