Writing with Gabriel García Márquez [Margarita Borrero]
All Levels | This course will focus on Gabriel García Márquez, one of the best writers of the twentieth century. Based on his writings, we will center on how to find the story, choosing the right moment for the opening, taking advantage of point of view, plotting, and balancing style and form. We will study García Márquez’s own testimony about how his stories took form and examine the storytelling tools and evolution that made him a master of the craft. At the end of each lesson, we’ll do class exercises aimed at exploring our own writing.
This class is being offered in collaboration with Seattle Escribe and will be offered in English this, Spring, quarter and in Spanish in Summer 2021.
