Online Class | Writing About Friendship

VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).

All Levels | Friendships aren’t always taken as seriously in our culture as romantic or familial bonds, but they can be every bit as meaningful, dynamic, and complicated. In this class, we’ll consider ways of representing these relationships and their power on the page. We’ll look to other writers for inspiration, and we’ll explore style, language, and form as we write and revise our own stories of friendship (whether fiction or nonfiction) in a supportive workshop setting.

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.
