Course Catalog

The Ultimate Craft Class

All Levels | In this two-day intensive workshop, we’ll cover several essential craft lessons: how to create dramatic scenes, unforgettable characters, and an irresistible narrator. Then we’ll complete in-class exercises to help bring the lessons home. Come prepared to learn more in two days than you thought possible. Each day includes a lunch break.

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.
