Course Catalog

The Most Personal Essay

All Levels | We’ll study, write, and workshop short essays that delve deeply into first-person point of view, focusing on structure, narrative voice, and scene in order to cultivate vulnerability without self-indulgence, pathos without sentimentality, sharing without oversharing. Students will receive one-on-one editorial advice as well as critique from fellow students as they prepare essays to submit for publication.

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.
