All Levels | A good book review is a chance both to explore and name literary pleasure and to offer another artist the gift of our attention. In this class, we will discuss how to develop and craft a book review with care. We will read different book reviews and learn to pitch and write our own, workshopping our material together, with an eye toward entering our own reviews in the literary ecosystem.
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.
