This class will feature in-class writing, reading, and discussion around how writers build a credible universe on the page: a setting that envelops readers. Russell will bring in stories from throughout the realism/speculative fiction continuum: traveling from Oz, to Macondo, and Detroit. Russell will also guide students through Mavis Gallant’s incredible “The Fifteenth District,” in which Gallant applies the tricks of realism to a spectral realm, and still makes room for social commentary and existential terror. Includes one-hour lunch breaks.
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.
