Finish Your Manuscript — Really!

Intermediate/Advanced | Sometimes it takes a stealth combo of craft tactics and psychological warfare to overcome the enemies of creativity: resistance, self-doubt, and procrastination. This class is designed for people who have at least 100 pages written of a novel or memoir and are committed to finishing it — really! We’ll work on exercises designed to motivate and facilitate forward motion, with realistic goal-setting and accountability in class and optional check-in with a Facebook group between classes. Students will workshop in class and complete structural exercises.

Required text: The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield.

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.
