We’ll hone fifteen tools for improving the lyric and narrative qualities of our prose, drawn from my anthology Telling True Stories: A Nonfiction Writers’ Guide. This workshop offers strategies for facing the blank page, sharpening your sentences, and seeing a long writing project through to completion. We’ll spend equal portions of our time completing writing exercises and considering examples from master word-workers: Sandra Cisneros, Elizabeth Gilbert, Stephen Kuusisto, George Orwell, and Sei Shonagon.
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.
Wendy Call is a recent writer-in-residence at a dozen locales, including national parks, universities, a public hospital, and Richard Hugo House. Her 2011 book No Word for Welcome won the 2011 Grub Street National Book Prize for Nonfiction.
