Writing the New Seattle [Charles Mudede]
This writing class will be about how we can write about the major changes happening in Seattle. We have reached, as it were, a point where the sharp increases in our city’s buildings, human activity, and economic volume are significantly separating the city we have known from the city we are becoming. With the most recent boom in construction and inflows of capital, the third such boom in under fifteen years, we must see ourselves in a phase of transition. Let’s think and write about this transition. Let’s remember the old city and attempt to describe the one just around the corner.
