Course Catalog

Memoir Intensive

All Levels | Spend three days diving into the memoir. This intensive will include lecture, discussion, writing prompts, brainstorming activities designed to get to the heart of your work as a writer, and workshops of participants’ writing. Lecture/ discussion topics will include voice and vision, inviting the reader into the work, narrative arc, thematic drive, collage techniques, scene-building, the publication process, and how to make the most of your writing time. There will be an hour-long lunch break each day.

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.
