All Levels.This course is for anyone who loves the short form and wants to grab the reader. Short-short nonfiction is a lot like poetry: it is absorbed by the body as well as the mind; its music, cadence, and tempo are integral to content. We will try our hand at blog spots, radio commentary, personal reflections, and short reviews. We’ll even produce our own podcasts. Come learn how to grab your reader—and listener—in the gut.
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.
