This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
Every writer faces a basic decision at the keyboard: How much of my own life, and which parts, can I disclose? Will my friends and family recognize themselves? Will they disapprove? How do we, as writers, find the balance between their right to privacy and our right to make art? This discussion, which applies both to fiction and nonfiction, uses examples from Cheryl Strayed and others as a point of departure.
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.
