This class will introduce you to the diverse styles of creative nonfiction, including memoir, personal essays, and lyric essays. Each week we will study craft elements such as scene, reflection, point of view, metaphor, and locating the heart of the story, as we discuss essays by authors such as Jesmyn Ward, Cheryl Strayed, and Ross Gay. We will also freewrite from weekly prompts and post our writing online, working our way toward drafting a final piece for instructor and peer feedback.
This class takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and sessions can be completed at your own pace throughout the week.
If the dates below do not work for you, check out Section II of this class.
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.
