Course Catalog

Scene Writing Intensive

All Levels | Get some concentrated work on your manuscript done this summer. 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.
