Short Essays for the Internet

All Levels | Whether they’re expository, personal, or reported, internet publications are seeking clear, compelling short essays. In this workshop, we’ll cover how to identify your specialty themes, and how to outline and write short essays about single issues (750-1,000 words) including a call to action. We’ll discuss different short essay forms and when to choose each. We’ll discuss how to find publications to fit your interests (and how to tailor your writing to publications you admire). Students will practice pitches and leave with lots of homework, because practice is what’s needed to succeed.

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.
