VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).
All Levels | In this class, we’ll discuss the psychology of the counterplot — a story plot that originates from the agency of the author, as opposed to from an internalized source of guilt or shame. Working to push back against reductive, shame-based narratives, we’ll gain skills to aim our writing toward personal empowerment. The goal of our time together will be to create pieces in which we’re the protagonists in our own stories.
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.
