Course Catalog

Scene Writing Intensive

All Levels. Do you want to start the new year with some concentrated work on your manuscript? In this class, you will be asked to write two scenes a week for four weeks. Class will include lecture, discussion, and workshops of your new scenes. We will do an in-depth study of what makes a scene sizzle, including discussion of the topics of internal and external conflict, dialogue, action, description, and more.

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.
