Imagining the Other: Writing and Reading Inclusively

All Levels | How do we read and write about those peoples and cultures different from our own? What does it take to read and write intersectionally? How do we reach a diverse audience? Recognize the pitfalls of cultural appropriation, exoticism, and tokenism that unwittingly lead even the most well-intentioned writer into difficulties. Read and discuss examples from Junot Díaz, Toni Morrison, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, and others. There will also be opportunities to workshop your own writing.

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.
