Course Catalog

Saturday Morning Fiction Workshop (Ballard)

This roundtable workshop is designed to help short-story writers and novelists of all levels develop their fiction through in-class discussions of their own work. Each week, students will read and prepare comments on the student manuscripts up for discussion. The instructor will provide relevant exercises, lessons, and readings related to class discussions. Students will receive feedback on at least one of their pieces (twenty pages or fewer). We’ll examine the work of writers such as Alice Munro, Franz Kafka, Lorrie Moore, and Roxane Gay.

This class will meet at Ballard Homestead (6541 Jones Ave NW Seattle,WA 98117)

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.
