Course Catalog

Yearlong in Short Story (IN-PERSON)

All Levels | The short story remains arguably the best medium through which a fiction writer hones their craft, and in this class that’s exactly our aim. We’ll read, write, discuss, and critique short fiction with equal parts rigor and vigor. Ours isn’t some dry, lifeless affair — fiction’s too good for that. Instead, expect lively exchanges of ideas, stimulating writing prompts, literary experiments, and occasional baked goods. Also expect mind-blowing readings from George Saunders, Zadie Smith, Carmen Maria Machado, Ottessa Moshfegh, and many more.

Payment plans available. Contact registrar@hugohouse.org for more information.

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.
