Writing the Fictionalized Memoir

All Levels | Are you struggling to tell your personal story in a dramatic and entertaining way, or understand what the book-worthy story really is? Infusing your real-life experiences with fiction can free you to explore all of the storytelling possibilities. We’ll focus on creating a container for your story and a character arc for your narrator with lots of scene-building exercises. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of how to marry memoir and fiction throughout your book.

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.
