Writing the Vignette (ASYNCHRONOUS)

All Levels | Vignettes are fun and satisfying “blips” of writing, which are generally considered prose but tend toward poetry. They don’t necessarily “go” anywhere but, when artfully roped together, have created some astonishing longer works, including The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros and An American Childhood by Annie Dillard. This workshop examines and celebrates this small, vibrant unit of fiction. Fiction writers, memoirists, and poets who are looking to transition to prose are encouraged to register.

This class takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and sessions can be done at your own pace throughout the week.

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.
