Course Catalog

Generating Short Forms

All Levels | We’ll explore a variety of short forms, inspired by a recent anthology called, appropriately, Short. Participants may respond to weekly writing prompts with prose poems, “regular” poems, aphorisms, postcard messages, scripts, playlets, essays, or flash fiction. As long as responses are reasonably pithy, they qualify. Required text will be available at Elliott Bay Book Company: Ziegler, Alan. Short: An International Anthology of Short-Short Stories, Prose Poems, Brief Essays, and other Short Forms (Persea, 2014).

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.
