Personal Essays for Publication

All Levels | From start to finish, we will generate ideas and timely angles for personal essays, craft the perfect pitch, workshop personal essay structure, and learn how to find the right publication’s editor to give your piece a home. Whether this is your first byline, or you want to improve your pitch acceptance rate, this class will cover everything you need to get your personal essay published.

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.
