Thirty Ways to Tell a Story

In this fast-paced afternoon, we’ll zoom through thirty writing exercises, finding the best way to get the words out. If there’s a story (factual or otherwise) you’ve been itching to tell, this is your chance to anchor those words on the page. Myriad writing prompts – incorporating questions, answers, lines of poetry, images, objects, even scents – will help us open the dusty drawers of memory, wish, and imagination. Each participant will leave with a full, mad draft that’s ready for a first revision.

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.
