Introductory/Intermediate | Do you want to liven up your dialogue? This class introduces you to the art of subtext: those implied messages that give invisible life to the things we say. Through writing exercises and sample stories by authors such as Ernest Hemingway, Flannery O’Connor, Charles Baxter, and Karen Russell, you’ll learn to master the most important element of dynamic dialogue: what’s left unsaid.
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.
