Write Your Fantasy Novel

All Levels | Stuck on your fantasy novel? Need help figuring out the ins and outs of worldbuilding? Trying to decide how to build characters your readers can connect to? In this workshop we’ll help each other navigate the pitfalls of plot, characters, pacing, dialogue, and all the other characteristics that make a story shine. Writers will generate work in class using prompts and be assigned some take-home work. This is a workshop, so you will submit your work to the class for discussion.

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.
