Everything I Know About Writing, I Learned from Meg Wolitzer

All Levels | These workshops will reveal just how much we can learn through a close reading of a single work. By laser-focusing our attention on one brilliant piece, we’ll be able to deconstruct all aspects of craft: narration, characterization, plot, pacing, scenes, and exposition. Each class will include a writing prompt, so students can learn by doing. Strap in—this is going to rock.

All students in reading classes will receive a book club discount on the instructor’s reading list at the Elliott Bay Book Co.

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.
