Course Catalog

Fiction II

This class will build upon craft learned in Fiction I. We’ll briefly review the basics of character, conflict, and plot, then focus on craft elements including point of view, setting, scene, pacing, and dialogue. Students will read published stories weekly, do weekly in-class and take-home writing exercises, lead discussions, and workshop their own drafts (including a full story or story/novel excerpt) in a supportive environment with their teacher and peers. The instructor will provide a story to read before the first class.

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.
