All Levels | Is it time to tell your story, but you’re not sure how to begin? Are you deep in a draft but hitting a wall? Feeling unsure about structure? This class combines nuts-and-bolts instruction about the elements of great memoir with weekly writing prompts, troubleshooting, sharing, and discussion. Topics will include: crafting a voice, problems with dialogue, balancing exposition and scenic action, fact-checking and ethics, and much more.
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.
