Course Catalog

Worldbuilding: Outside and In

All Levels | All fiction writers engage in worldbuilding. The first three weeks of this class will look at how to build exterior worlds, including place, culture, and atmosphere. The next two weeks will explore the interior world of needs, wants, fears, repressed desires, and wounds your character hides, including how this interior history shows up in their actions. The final week will be workshopping.

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.
