How to Write a “Modern Love” Essay

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | The Modern Love column in the New York Times has been a reader favorite since its inception in 2004. In this class we will look at a few example columns and discuss their structure as well as insider tips on how to write an essay that is more likely to be a “Yes.” Bring your writing tools and your questions.

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.
