Six Entryways into 2021 (ZOOM)

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 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.
