Intermediate | A well-developed setting transports a young reader firmly into another world. We’ll analyze strong settings from recent MG/YA novels, seeing how place can comfort and/or challenge the main character and deepen inner growth. For in-class writing exercises, we’ll use prompts to explore giving setting a personality, both as a refuge and as a threat. This class is intended for adult writers of middle grade/young adult fiction.
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.
