Introductory/Intermediate. How will you tell your life story? Personal writing is an exciting area to explore, and this class offers you multiple approaches to digging into your life and writing about your experiences—and the world around you. From memoir to lyricism, nature writing to travel writing, we’ll explore our stories and voices in the company of contemporary authors like David Sedaris, Eula Biss, Annie Dillard, and David Foster Wallace while trying out several short, inspirational assignments to get you underway.
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.
