Writing Technology Into Fiction

All Levels | We live much of our lives on our devices, communicating with each other through Zoom, texts, emojis, GIFs, feeds, posts, apps, and videos, yet fiction is still figuring out how to represent these facets of our lives in prose. This class is designed to help organize your thinking as you bring modern technology into your work. We’ll look at examples from a variety of authors and genres in order to make the decisions that work best for our writing. This class will have an hour-long lunch break.

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.
