In this class, we’ll focus on writing (short) science fiction and fantasy, paying special attention to what makes stories seem real and believable even when the characters and locale are exotic or unreal. Topics for the writing prompts will include time travel, alien invasions, robots, wizards and warriors, space travel, and other SF and fantasy themes. Students have opportunities to share their writings and get feedback from others in the class. Whether you’re an established SF writer or a novice, come join us and have fun writing.
Writing science fiction and fantasy gives us an opportunities to explore worlds of emotion and imagination, and to speculate on everything from how current social trends may develop in the future, to what life may be like on other worlds or times, to what it means to be human. Science fiction can have a logical and scientific foundation, or one that’s intensely personal. Instructor: Nils Osmar

Looking for a screenwriting class that covers the fundamentals, and gives you an opportunity to write and workshop some actual scenes and short scripts? In this Seattle screenwriting class, open to both beginners and experienced writers, you’ll learn how screenplays are written, learn what writing habits to avoid, do writing both during and outside the class hours, and get helpful feedback on your writings.
In this four week workshop, we’ll learn some things about how screenplays are written, then get some practice in writing them. You’ll have a chance to write “minute movies” (just a page long), short screenplays (a few pages long), and scenes from full length movies. There will also be opportunities (for those who want to) to share your writing with the class and get some feedback.
In this enjoyable Seattle writing class, students will learn about the elements of short story writing; get practice coming up with stories of their own; and have opportunities to get feedback from the instructor and others. You’ll also learn how to copyright your writings, and how to get your writings published. The focus in the class is on developing our skills and learning to let the process happen easily and spontaneously.
