The Stories We Tell: Fiction and Nonfiction

Tuesdays: February 4-March 4 (5 weeks)


Location: Capitol Hill

Instructor: Corinne Manning

Cost: $180

We will use this class to explore our own stories, what makes them stories, and how to best tell them. We will explore documentary work such as Sarah Polley’s film Stories We Tell and will read fiction and nonfiction by writers such as James Baldwin, Scott Russel Sanders, Eula Biss, and Mary Gaitskill. This is a great continuation course for anyone who has taken Writing Trauma/Healing Narratives or a launch off point for those interested in creating narratives, or simply finding the story.

December 14- 15, Saturday and Sunday

Sunday: 1-2:30 (Greenwood)

Explore magical realism and fairy tales with 3 teachers over the course of one weekend in this moveable feast of a writing workshop. Participants will move from house to house gaining craft skills, knowledge, and writing some “marvelous” fiction and exploring the memoir as fairy tale. Readings will include Brothers Grimm, Angela Carter, and Alyssa Nutting.

Each class will last 1.5 hours and will take place in Capitol Hill and the Central District on Saturday, ending in Greenwood on Sunday. Carpooling is encouraged. Course must be taken as a whole. No single class drop ins.


Fanning the Flame: One on One Course

Rolling dates, 4 weeks

Cost: $180

Instructor: Corinne Manning

This is a build your own course that you and I co-create together. There are two, hour long, in person meetings at the beginning and the end of the session, and writing assignments and reading are established to best fit the needs of the individual student. This is a great launching off point for those looking to find their voice and is also a powerful option for those needing to fan the flame of their own writing process.

Note: Accessibility is limited due to four flights of stairs and no elevator.
