Course Catalog

Alternate Realities in Short Fiction

Intermediate | This class will focus on short stories that slightly shift reality in order to magnify our awareness of social constructs and the human condition. How do we create and write within worlds that are marginally bent by elements of magic, science fiction, dreams, and fantasy? In addition to discussing stories by authors such as Zadie Smith, Karen Russell, and Carmen Maria Machado, we’ll also undertake in-class and take-home writing exercises to generate new work within this genre.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
