Hit the Road

All Levels | What is it about road trips? From Twain to Kerouac, writers have found inspiration in hitting the road, making the American road narrative an essential genre. In this class, we’ll examine the ‘road’ in literature as a theme, symbol, and organizing principle. Since we’ve all been cooped up this year, class will consist of two sections, and participants will be encouraged to get out between them for a drive. When we re-meet, we’ll bring our scribbles and routes, then write together.

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.
