The Setting of the Mind

Intermediate | Camaraderie between reader and main character is vital if we’re to establish a lasting, poignant connection between them. But how do we build that? What if we render a character’s consciousness as though it’s a cogent ecosystem for the reader to inhabit? In this class, students will be led through all five senses, learning how to translate perceptions into opportunities to enhance psychic access on the page. Through in-class writing prompts, we’ll build dynamic inner lives for our characters, places for our readers to curl up and listen to the whispers of the heart.

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.
