All Levels. This four-week workshop will guide students through the stages of drafting original short-short stories and vignettes, from the opening stance of the narrator to the final reveal. Students can expect to come away with a wealth of new short material and to apply techniques—such as fairness, repetition, ins, outs, and “pushing”—used by short-story writers Amy Hempel, Sam Lipsyte, and Richard Ford.
This class is conducted online through WetInk. It can be taken at your own pace between the start and end dates. More information on accessing the class will be provided upon registration.
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.
