Show and Tell

All Levels | Though many of us have heard the advice “show, don’t tell,” this workshop will embrace the practice of both showing and telling. When should you rely on just the facts? When should you linger in scene? We will find answers to these questions and more, reading and discussing authors who excel at balancing scene and exposition (Adichie, Didion, Mura, O’Faolain, etc.). Students will workshop a story, essay, or excerpt from a longer piece and can expect significant feedback from the instructor.

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.

Beth Slattery

Beth Slattery moved to Seattle after eighteen years of teaching creative writing and literature at Indiana University East. Since her relocation, she has been writing and editing. Beth is currently working on a collection of personal essays about her mid-life marriage to a Zimbabwean, a move from the Midwest to the Pacific Northwest, and a reluctant acceptance of the call to adventure. Her most recent publications appear in Assay: A Journal of Nonfiction Studies and Southern Women’s Review. Beth’s recent editing work includes being a “beta” reader for an author with a multi-book publishing contract, content and copy editing of a personal essay collection, and providing comprehensive editing services on an edited academic volume that was later published by Oxford University Press. She has an M.A. in fiction writing from Miami University and an M.F.A. in creative nonfiction from the University of Southern Maine—Stonecoast.
