Plot or Not

All Levels | Is it a juicy plot that keeps pages turning, or something else? We’ll read stories and craft essays that examine the nature of plot, tension, pacing, and structure; complete generative exercises and collaborative projects; and workshop the outlines we generated in class for hands-on exploration of what makes a story go. This class will focus on creating and workshopping new material. Writers of all levels can use this class to find new ideas — and maybe even cure writer’s block!

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
