ONLINE | Close Reading and Imitation: A Generative Fiction Workshop

All Levels | Let’s read great short stories and then learn through imitation. We will look closely at stories that do something well (dialog, relationships, family, the unknown) and make our own attempts through homage. Each week, you will attempt a new story based on our readings. We will share our attempts with one another and, within these imitations, suss out one another’s writerly strengths. Expect to come away with six new story starts. This class takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and sessions can be completed at your own pace throughout the 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.
