Course Catalog

Reading and Journaling with Anaïs Nin

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | If we’re sexy, vulnerable, and detailed in the accounts of our private lives, imagine what happens when we intend someone to read our work? We will study one of the masters of the diary form, Anaïs Nin, by reading Volume I of her diary (1931-1934), which encompasses her affair with Henry Miller and his wife, June. In addition to reading Volume I, expect to practice methods of diary keeping in the style of Nin and making some entries public. All students in reading classes will receive a book club discount on the instructor’s reading list at the Elliott Bay Book Co.

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.
