Ten weeks, ten keys. Each week, we’ll explore one essential element of creative nonfiction: story arc, research strategies, first-person narrator, sense of place, strong characters and scenes and dialogue, compelling theme, self-editing, and that elusive thing called “style.” Short readings by master writers ranging from Aristotle to Alexandra Fuller to Alice Walker will guide our work. All nonfiction genres, from literary journalism to lyric essay, are welcome. Each class session includes discussion of readings and techniques, as well as in-class and take-home writing exercises. This is not a workshop; we won’t share or critique our writing.
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.
