There’s no such thing as the “good-enough sentence.” If your sentences aren’t crafted to tell your particular story or essay, they’re just getting in the way. Learn how to build sentences that grip the reader, evoke tone, deepen mood, reveal character, advance plot, and help a narrative breathe. You’ll complete lots of writing exercises to learn how to play with the sentence and master it so it serves a specific purpose. Bring a sample of your prose to first analyze and then revise your sentences. Warning: You may fall in love with the sentence.
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.
