Course Catalog

Advanced Short Story Workshop

Advanced | Students who have completed Fiction I and II or have a similar level of experience will be ready for this class. We will workshop one story at a time with an emphasis on learning from the craft of a student’s piece. Lessons will be tailored to the issues in each student’s story. We’ll learn the Critical Response Process, an anti-oppressive feedback strategy that allows the writer to receive the feedback that is most useful to the story. We’ll build our tools of fiction while also bending them, questioning them, and re-envisioning what’s possible in storytelling. As time allows, we’ll also examine published work that inspires and instructs.

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.
