Comedic Memoir (IN-PERSON)

All Levels | Join the author of the comedic memoir Gawky: Tales of an Extra Long Awkward Phase, Margot Leitman, as she guides you through refining what is funny, specific, unique, and timely about your story. You’ll learn some overall principles of memoir writing, pitch and refine your memoir idea with the group, learn the publishing process of memoir, and leave with ideas of where to begin those important sample chapters.

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.
