Seattle's doing its wet winter thing, which means it's the perfect time to retreat indoors, splash words on the page, and spring forth new stories! Over the next few months, find me at Seattle's beloved Hugo House, where I'll be leading three courses designed to get you past the blank page and into creation mode: The Anti-Workshop - Writing as Creative Practice; Introduction to Scrivener (the writing software that will change your life); and The Micro Essay, an introduction to nonfiction in its many flash-y facets. Registration and more information on the Hugo House website.
