How Stories Get Told: Voice and Narrative Distance

All Levels | Students will learn to differentiate author voice from character voice and how to blend the two. Also, they’ll learn how to manipulate the distance between the telling and the story events and characters. We will read selected examples, do in-class practice, and workshop excerpts submitted by students after the class begins.

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.
