Workshop for Weirdos (IN-PERSON)

Intermediate | Are your stories a little out of place in a typical workshop? This class focuses on those weird stories—the ones that are bizarre and uncanny and just don’t quite fit anywhere else. Each week we’ll discuss aspects of creating a weird story such as world building, genre, and publication. We’ll look at weird stories from Karen Russell, Ted Chiang, and more. We will also workshop each other’s writing, safe in the knowledge that we are surrounded by our fellow weirdos.

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.
