The Fiction Lab: Short Story Workshop

The short story remains arguably the best medium through which a fiction writer hones her craft, and that’s exactly our aim. In this class, we will read, write, discuss, and workshop short fiction with equal parts rigor and vigor. Ours isn’t some dry, lifeless class—fiction’s too good for that. Instead, expect lively exchanges of ideas, mind-blowing readings, stimulating writing prompts, and occasional baked goods.

Hugo House is temporarily moving! May 19 is the last date Hugo House will hold classes at its current location. Starting May 20, Hugo House classes will be held at 1021 Columbia Street, Seattle, WA 98104.

This class will change locations in week 6.

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.
