Online Class | Autofiction

VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).

All Levels | Unlike personal essay and memoir, which are the explorations of what was, autofiction allows us to keenly feel into what was while also imagining the spaces between and around. It’s an opportunity to write about your life with the freedom to transform the facts of your experience and yourself into something else — while still holding the lived reality of your experience. In this generative workshop we will experiment with methods that will manipulate the lived and sensed reality of our experience and attempt a form that creates greater possibility for experimentation. Example writers will include Dionne Brand, Yūko Tsushima, and Hervé Guibert.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
