Writing classes help writers tell compelling stories, reach a wide audience and satisfy some of their deepest yearnings for pattern, mystery, and coherence in their lives.
Narrative writing allows for great scope and ambition, but it requires commitment to the habit of art to succeed. Our writing classes will help you develop your own habit of art, mastering the craft of narrative writing essential to creating fiction and nonfiction stories. We teach Seattle writing classes, travel writing classes and a wide range of online writing classes.

Have you always wanted to write but haven’t known where to start? Have you written in the past but need a refresher? Are you an experienced author who wants to perfect and extend your technique? We offer a wide variety of writing classes to meet the needs of a wide range of writers. All of our instructors have extensive teaching and professional writing experience, allowing them to guide students through the sometimes bewildering world of newspaper, magazine and book publication.
There’s still room in my new winter Seattle Writing Class, The Arc of the Story, our online writing classes and my Travel, Food and Wine Writing Course in Tuscany (May 20 – 26). Sign up early to reserve a slot.
The Arc of the Story is a new class and part of The Writer’s Workshop’s Certificate Program in Narrative Writing. Each of the program’s four Seattle writing classes may be taken independently, but together they give you a comprehensive introduction to the art and craft of narrative writing. The number of students who have taken classes through The Writer’s Workshop and gone on to publish stories, articles and books is truly impressive. Take a look at their stories on the Reviews page. In these classes, you’ll learn more about the art and craft of writing than you would in most MFA programs, at a fraction of the cost!
Learn the secrets of narrative writing on my blog and my online literary magazine, The Writer’s Workshop Review, and the Narrative Writing Techniques page on this website. Finally, The Writer’s Workshop will sponsor a Homage to Richard Hugo Reading, Thursday, Dec. 21 at 8 p.m. Please rvsp if you can make it!
