- Events & Programs
Want to write a short story? Learn the basic fiction elements? Practice revising? In this class, you’ll do all three. Following a revolutionary approach, we’ll start with a blank page, draft an account of an event, and then revise that draft, each week learning a different element (POV, time management, objects/setting, age of protagonist, world events, conflict, narrative structure, and wild card) and adding that layer to the previous revision. On the last week, we’ll present the completed stories in class.
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.
