Romance Architecture for Beginners

Introductory | The romance genre is a language of patterns. There are grand ones, like Cinderella and all her variations, while others are exquisitely miniature, such as how an author describes the way a glove slides off a hand. This four-week class will introduce some of romance’s most significant structures at the level from the story to the sentence, and show new authors how to finesse them to surprise and delight romance’s uniquely fluent readership.

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.
