Digging into the Details

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.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
