The Art of Storytelling

Intemediate | To learn to weave dialogue, narrative, and action into a well-paced story is to craft a work of art. You can learn the techniques if you’re listening carefully to your story’s voice and willing to work to find the best structure for that voice. In-class writing will include short exercises in dialogue, infusing a scene with emotion, and deepening your story’s theme.

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.
