Introductory / Intermediate | Whether you’re writing a memoir, a long essay, or flash nonfiction, this class is for you. We’ll read and discuss examples of autobiographical literature, discuss elements of craft (i.e. tension, chronology, vivid description, point-of-view), and celebrate the artistic possibilities of writing one’s life. Authors will include Jeanette Winterson, Naomi Shihab Nye, Jo Ann Beard, and Jesse Stuart. With in-class writing exercises and instructor guidance, you’ll find a structure for your narratives and a conduit for your imagination.
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.
