The Anatomy of a Sentence

All Levels | We will find, read, examine, diagram, imitate, and draft great sentences. We’ll start small, identifying sentence parts and practicing varied constructions, then go big, combining sentences to produce vibrant paragraphs. Sentence-specific workshops will use close reading to fine-tune prose to its most perfect beat. No project needed—use the exercises from this class to get your creativity flowing or simply explore your love of language. Useful for all writers in all genres. No grammar expertise needed.

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.
