Course Catalog

Six Entryways into 2021

All Levels | How to write so your work reflects what it feels like to be alive now rather than what it felt like to be alive in 1921: 1. Brevity; 2. Journal; 3. Collage; 4. Remix/Appropriation; 5. Photo/Film; 6. Collaboration. Through a combination of brief videotaped lecture, live lecture, and class discussion, we’ll explore the ways in which you might deploy similar strategies in your own work.

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.
