The Beauty & Peril of Friendship (ZOOM)

All Levels | As writers, we tend to focus on romance and family drama as subjects worthy of our work. What we often overlook are the intense friendships that we have over the course of our lives, friendships that can rescue and redeem us, and that can also break our hearts. In this workshop, we’ll look at the work of masters such as Margaret Atwood and Ann Patchett, in an effort to understand how certain friendships become both life raft and shark to us. We’ll also do an in-class writing exercise that will help bring the lessons home.

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.
