Novels must grab the readers in the first ten pages. But how? Each day will start with a talk on story and then we’ll dive into workshopping the first ten pages of your novel. This class is for students working on a novel or for students who want to learn story craft.
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.
