Finding Your Authority in Nonfiction

All Levels | Examine strategies writers use to maintain authority while not-knowing, and how this essential risk can lead to greater vulnerability, complexity, and artistic surprise. We’ll read Yiyun Li, Brian Blanchfield, and Elissa Washuta, and study the ways they build essays larger than what they’re “about.” We’ll draft new nonfiction, starting from what we don’t know and digging deeper each session, workshopping as we go, practicing how to open our work to diverse ways of knowing and not-knowing.

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.
