All Levels | This generative class will explore the power of detail and description in prose. We’ll consider the practices both on and off the page that help readers fully enter the worlds and scenes we’re describing. Along the way we’ll share work in a supportive setting and take cues from masters of close noticing like Ross Gay, Nicholson Baker, and Lynda Barry. Students will leave with new pages and with strategies to carry forward into future writing projects.
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.
