Course Catalog

Life in a Teacup

In this workshop, we will talk about and write flash fiction—those marvelous little stories that can be a single sentence or a couple of pages. Think of them as worlds in a teacup. You will be asked to write a pair of these tiny tales: one memoir, the other fiction.

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.
