Online Class | Contextualizing the Family Story

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | As Wendell Berry wrote, “The world is full of places. Why is it that I am here?” In this class, we will discover how to connect our intimate experiences to a broader social history by studying the work of Jesmyn Ward, Camille Dungy, Karen Tei Yamashita, Nick Flynn, and others. Then, using a combination of research and in-class writing assignments, we will practice grounding our subjective emotional truths in objective external circumstances. The result will be individual stories that reflect a greater sense of where we come from and who we are.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
