Course Catalog

Writing Without a Map

DATE CHANGE: This class will now take place on 12/14. This has been updated from the print catalog. 

To write from an outline is to know from the beginning where you’re headed. But what happens if you dive in with nothing but some scraps of dialogue, an idea, or a gut feeling? To write without a planned destination is to allow your work to surprise you—often in wonderful ways. In this generative workshop, we’ll use a series of prompts to create freewrites that build to a complete first draft of a new story. Please come with paper, pen or pencil, and a willingness to explore.

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.
