Introductory / Intermediate | This is a popular class with proven results, aimed at those who want to write a memoir or have begun one and are stalled. Each week requires an essay of 300 words providing essential building blocks for memoir. These essays are read aloud and critiqued in class; they are also critiqued in writing by the instructor. Weekly reading assignments from two helpful guidebooks (Judith Barrington, William Zinsser) provide memoir insights and inspiration. A convivial class atmosphere is encouraged and highly valued.
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.
