Our First Gods: Writing Our Parents

All Levels | Too often unapproachable, unassailable—our parents are our first gods. How have we known them? How might we know them now? And are we ready for our parents to fall from their thrones and become not gods (or devils) but the human beings they are? In this generative workshop participants will think, discuss, share, and write about their own parents in the hopes that all will leave with the beginnings of several personal pieces.

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.
