All Levels | We will look at several classic examples of the short story and flash fiction, examining the basic and subtle elements of the genre. We will discuss the differences between the short story and longer forms, crafting a compelling story, building strong characters and plot elements within a confined space, and the editing process. Through writing prompts and exercises, students will learn the art of “less is more.” Later classes will focus on how to bring flash fiction to life. By the end of the course students will have a strong head start on writing their own short stories.
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.
