In fiction, character is the font of narrative. A strongly written character’s desires, behavior, and limitations create and evolve plot. Consequently, when starting a new novel or story, a writer’s knowledge of one’s primary characters interrogates and supersedes all other variables. Through a discussion of the work of Alice Munro, Dana Johnson, Paul Beatty, and Denis Johnson, this class will explore the components and utility of memorable characters. Students are urged, but not required, to bring works-in-progress or character sketches for discussion and exploration.
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.
