Online Class | Voyages of Discovery: Research-Based Creative Writing

All Levels | What are the ways creative writers use and respond to research? How can we become investigators and anthropologists venturing into the fields of our topics? This course is for writers at any level, any genre interested in reading, discussing, and/or working on creative writing projects that are research-driven or experiment with research. Research can be historical, familial, archival, scientific, theory/academic, etc. We’ll read and discuss a sampling of research texts. I will also share a detailed research process I’ve developed. This course takes place online via our partners at Wet Ink, and classes can be completed at your own pace each week.

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.
