Telling Tough Stories: Writing Illness and Healing

Join us for a writing workshop that addresses the challenges of writing about illness, healing, and caregiving in a culture that prizes novelty and speed. Do you worry you will you bore your readers? Depress them too much? Shock them with laughter? Using examples and writing prompts, we’ll discover some techniques for successfully articulating your material. This class includes a lunch break.

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.
