This roundtable workshop for writers of all levels will focus on structure and style. Receive feedback and instruction to increase the impact of your nonfiction prose (memoir, essay, etc.), including thoughtful critiques on at least one of your pieces (20 pages or fewer). Learn to identify stylistic and structural characteristics in others’ work. In-class prompts, writing exercises, and readings from authors such as Joan Didion, Lydia Davis, Phillip Lopate, and Pico Iyer will spice up our weekly conversations. Each week, you’ll read and write comments about the manuscript to be workshopped. This class will meet at the Kirkland Arts Center (620 Market Street, Kirkland, WA 98033).
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.
