Introductory/Intermediate | In this class, you’ll write a short story, get hands-on practice with essential tools of fiction writing, and learn the art of revising. Start with a blank page: draft a voiced account of a true event in the first class. Then revise that draft, each week learning a different tool (POV, time management, objects/setting, age of protagonist, conflict, and structure) and adding that layer to the previous revision. Watch the stories emerge, deepen, shift, and find their final beauty.
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.
