All Levels | Students will read, write, and workshop their own lyric essays. Through a blend of primary texts and craft essays, we’ll learn about capabilities and characteristics of the form. Possible authors include Eula Biss, Claudia Rankine, Lia Purpura, Jo Ann Beard, and Anne Carson. We’ll consider the history of the lyric essay and, in light of the temper of our times, what role it may play in 2019. We’ll also identify places where students can submit their lyric essays.
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.
