Seven Keys to Unlocking Your Story

The dates for this class have been updated from the print catalog.

All Levels | Whether you’re dipping a toe into the waters of your story or stuck rowing around in circles, these seven keys to integrating character development, plot, and structure will enable you to navigate to the other shore. It’s all about creating a roadmap you can refer to when you’re unsure where your book is headed. We’ll review examples of these keys in successful novels and movies, and then use prompts and exercises to create the basic tenets of your story-world.

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.
