Keeping a notebook is an important part of a writer’s toolkit. It is a place to work out creative ideas, practice writing styles, and tap into your inner muse. Your notebook’s contents may serve as a springboard for poems, stories, essays, and full-length books. Through discussion and writing prompts, you will learn how to effectively use a journal. This course will also offer ideas on how to transform notebook entries into publishable and compelling work. Open to both emerging and published writers.
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.
