Saturday Morning Fiction Workshop (Ballard)

This roundtable workshop is designed to help short-story writers and novelists of all levels develop their fiction through in-class discussions of their own work. Each week, students will read and prepare comments on the student manuscripts up for discussion. The instructor will provide relevant exercises, lessons, and readings related to class discussions. Students will receive feedback on at least one of their pieces (twenty pages or fewer). We’ll examine the work of writers such as Alice Munro, Franz Kafka, Lorrie Moore, and Roxane Gay.

This class will meet at Ballard Homestead (6541 Jones Ave NW Seattle,WA 98117)

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
