Homes and Homelands: Exploring Belonging Through Writing

Note: These class dates have been updated from the print catalog.

All Levels. This course will be a combination of reading analysis and writing workshop for those writers who are working on immigrant experiences or exploring other forms of belonging. Using excerpts from the writings of such authors as Jhumpa Lahiri, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Salman Rushdie, this course explores what homes and homelands mean to writers and how race, place, and space intersect in writing.

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.
