Course Catalog


Students will plan and begin writing novels that have a component of adventure. Writers of realistic and speculative fiction are welcome, as well as writers of creative nonfiction. We’ll consider elements of world-building, opening chapters, character development, plot arc, and deployment of themes, as well as whatever else seems relevant to the crafting of these tales. There will be a small amount of reading and a workshop component.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
