Finding the Real Subject in Nonfiction

Got an itch but don’t know where to scratch? Have an idea but don’t know if it’s what the essay or memoir is really about? This class is for those floundering around subject matter they love but can’t seem to get written. Using established writers’ work and in-class writing, we will write our way into the true generating subject. Come prepared for surprise. All levels of writers welcome.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
