Strange Fiction

All Levels | A man made famous for playing a vampire on TV is haunted by a real ghost; a contemporary boarding school feels stuck in the Victorian era; a city’s polluted river conceals a monster. The unusual is thriving in contemporary storytelling, imitating our strange times. We will experiment with strangeness and consider the ways it can express very real experiences. Plan to read stories before class and start two new pieces.

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.
