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
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.
