Intermediate / Advanced | Writing historical fiction presents its own set of challenges. How much research is enough—or too much? How do we make the setting feel authentic? What do we owe the past? We’ll study excerpts from writers such as E.L. Doctorow, Toni Morrison, and Hilary Mantel, as well as interesting lesser-knowns, and through exercises and workshop, we’ll help each other craft compelling pieces of historical fiction. Students will have the chance to workshop a novel chapter or standalone story.
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.
