Online Class | Writing with a Mask

VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).

All Levels | In this four-week class, we will explore the uses and possibilities of persona in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction writing. Students will read and discuss examples of persona across genres, and write from prompts in class to explore new voices and perspectives, stretch their abilities, have fun, and break through blocks. We will also share and discuss our own work in class.

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.
