Bring together your literary sensibility and your social conscience in this class, which will help you generate (and revise) essay, memoir, reportage, and commentary inspired by social and political issues. We’ll focus on a different nonfiction form each week, reading stellar examples by Alexie, Atwood, Baldwin, Cisneros, Galeano, Kincaid, Lopate, Orwell, and Urrea. We’ll discuss the readings and complete in- and out-of-class writing assignments in small groups. All levels welcome. Satellite Class: Rainier Valley Cultural Center, 3515 South Alaska Street, Seattle, WA 98118
