Strengthen your fiction, improve your nonfiction, experiment with poetry — we have more than 25 free writing classes lined up for writers this fall through the Seattle Writes series. You’ll also find drop-in writing circles (no pressure! really!), write-ins scheduled during November for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and special presentations on writing and publishing for children and teens. Here’s a taste of what our fall 2018 Seattle Writes faculty is offering:
Anastacia-Reneé on resistance
Laura Da’ on poetry of place
Karen Finneyfrock on emotion in fiction
Reagan Jackson on memoir
Brian McDonald on story structure
Susan Meyers on starting your novel
Peter Mountford on making a scene
Nancy Rawles on writing silence
Beth Slattery on writing for procrastinators
Jolie Stekly on children’s publishing
Anca Szilagyi on contemporary fairy tales
Ann Teplick on teen poetry (for teen writers only)
Kristen Millares Young on better storytelling through research
Interested in writing for children and teens? We’re partnering with the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators of Western Washington to bring three programs to writers and illustrators for free.
Check the online 2018 Seattle Writes Fall schedule for complete class descriptions and details. Programs begin September 8!
Seattle Writes classes are offered free throughout the city thanks to the generous support of The Seattle Public Library Foundation.
