Course Catalog

The Hero’s Journey for Storytellers

All Levels | Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey is about finding the hero in the fictional or real stories that are our lives and giving that hero expression. Weekly lectures will be handed out and weekly assignments (optional) will be given and discussed in class. No in-class writing prompts as time together will be spent learning and discussing. Required reading: The Writer’s Journey by Christopher Vogler and/or The Outlaw’s Journey by Gloria Kempton.

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.
