This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
Literature tends to focus on parents and partners. But what about the siblings who shape who we become? We’ll look at the work of James Baldwin, Justin Torres, Jane Austen, and others to examine the profound influence (and anguish) that arises from our brothers and sisters, and how to write about these relationships. We’ll do an in-class exercise aimed at discovering this in real time.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
