All Levels | Often, the story a writer is really trying to tell lies deep beneath plot and characterization. This class will introduce students to the concept of hyperdetailing—an abundance of description, both spoken and unspoken, that reveals the narrative theme through subtext and infuses it with a deeper and more effective meaning. Students will submit a story or chapter and, through a series of exercises, workshop analysis, and intense revision, will take their work from early draft stage toward completion.
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.
