Untangling the Craft of Time

One reason editors reject manuscripts from very good writers is because those otherwise competent writers can’t seem to manage the structure of their own narratives. These writers have difficulty with the architecture of their novels and stories because they seem confused about the nature of Time and how to manipulate Time effectively in a narrative. So we’ll talk about Time – Big Time and Little Time – and how its integration into a narrative infuses coherence into a story and ultimately expands, or contracts, the consciousness on the page. Participants, if they wish, may bring a short selection of their work to be discussed.

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.
