The Ultimate Craft Class

All Levels | In this two-day intensive workshop, we’ll cover several essential craft lessons: how to create dramatic scenes, unforgettable characters, and an irresistible narrator. Then we’ll complete in-class exercises to help bring the lessons home. Come prepared to learn more in two days than you thought possible. Each day includes a lunch break.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
