TIME UPDATE: This class will now run from 10 am – 1 pm PT. This has been updated from the print catalog.
All Levels | We’ll examine published excerpts in prose (Jhumpa Lahiri, James Joyce, ZZ Packer, and others) and discuss the ways in which the authors achieve successful endings. We will consider the range of possibilities for endings in stories, essays, and yes, novels: action, flash-forward, open endings, resolved endings, and, of course, the surprising and inevitable ending. Part lecture and part discussion, this session will also provide the opportunity—time permitting—to try out various approaches for writing effective endings.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
