All Levels | Charles Baxter claims that the greatest fallacy of modern storytelling is that everyone is always listening to each other. In truth, we’re distracted, caught up in our own lives, and in general quite terrible at listening and responding to each other, especially those we care about. How do you get your characters talking honestly and vulnerably to one another? In this generative workshop, we’ll talk about how subtext can elevate your dialogue, while also learning how to listen to the musicality, oddness, and beauty of the conversations that surround us.
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.
