The Well-Made Story: A Fiction Workshop

In this workshop, we’ll read practitioners of classic realist fiction such as John Cheever and Eudora Welty as well as more recent figures including Mary Gaitskill, Russell Banks, and Jhumpa Lahiri and discover what uses the classically “well-made story” may have for us today. The class aims to interest both those who want to write the well-made story and those who want to critique the form. Each student will submit one story.

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.
