Course Catalog

Exploring Genre Through Jorge Luis Borges

All Levels | For writers interested in magical realism, fantasy, and the metaphysical, this class will look closely at the short stories of Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges. Through lecture, discussion, and generative writing exercises, we’ll explore what sets his stories apart as works of fiction, emphasizing his use of the following devices: the work within the work, the contamination of reality by dream, the voyage in time, and the double.

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.
