Narrative Time Travel

All Levels | Joy Williams says that stories are concerned with the “dark encroachment of old catastrophes.” This class will look at stories that rely heavily on synthesizing the past, present, and future and approach fiction from a non-linear perspective. We’ll explore the nature of flashbacks, flash-forwards, and drastic leaps in time. Authors we may read include Jennifer Egan, Mary Gaitskill, and Alice Munro.

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.
