This class is for writers in some stage of working on a novel for young adults, anywhere from initial concept to final draft. Using the four doorways into story—language, character, story and setting—we’ll investigate successful approaches to writing novels for young adults. Readings will include Meg Rosoff, Maggie Stiefvater, M.T. Anderson, Elizabeth Wein, and Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket). Expect exercises and generative opportunities in class. Each student will have one opportunity to share work and receive feedback.
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.
