Course Catalog

Write What You Know, Which is Literature

This class will explore the use of classical texts — stories, myths, archetypes, fairytales — to inform your story. Finding a form — and borrowing it — is a tried and true way to complicate and substantiate your own work.

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.
