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.
Check out Steve’s other “Everything I Know About Writing” classes:
4/11: Joyce Carol Oates
4/25: Nora Ephron
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
