Experiments in Story

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | In a crazy era, we need crazy stories, and that’s what this class is for: creating stories that rely less upon the trinity of Plot, Conflict, and Character. Each week, we’ll read and discuss stories that don’t hew to traditional underpinnings; then we’ll use the author’s methods to construct narratives of our own. We’ll likely read work by Donald Barthelme, Zadie Smith, Robert Coover, and Ted Chiang, among others. Our goal will be to generate writing every week that expands our authorial toolboxes and create stories crazier than we could ever have foreseen.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
