Writing Riveting Sentences

All Levels | In this course, students will learn how to write suspenseful dialogue, riveting exposition, and descriptive detail that will keep your reader turning pages. Every week will feature a seminar-style discussion of what makes each craft element click, and these will be paired with student writing exercises. We’ll discuss short examples of student work as a class to highlight new and surprising approaches.

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.
