All Levels | Do you love Kafka, George Saunders, Gogol, Leslie Marmon Silko, Colson Whitehead, Kathleen Alcala, and Aimee Bender? Whether you are an experienced or beginning fiction writer, poet, or screenplay writer, you will learn a series of magical realist techniques that will energize your writing and send it to strange and wonderful places. Through readings, non-competitive games, and writing prompts, you will walk out with usable pages and a toolbox of strategies that you can use long after class is over.
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.
