When the Personal Turns Fictional

All Levels | You have a story to tell that comes from your life experience. Maybe you’ve tried to tell it straight, but it just isn’t coming out right. We’ll discuss and practice the moment when a story turns from truth into fiction. We’ll test strategies for developing fiction out of life experiences, what to keep and what to let go. Plan to begin at least two new stories, setting your experiences loose into the realm of fiction.

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.
