Course Catalog

FREE The Antiracist Workshop in Action

What does a constructive, equitable, antiracist writing workshop look like? Imagine students rallying around one another, reading in service of the author’s agenda, articulating constructive questions, and moderating their own feedback. In this interactive session featuring personal story, freewriting exercises, and a model writing workshop-in-action, Felicia Rose Chavez will share antiracist practices that can be used in all our workshop classes.

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.
