Let’s talk fundamentals. This mixed-genre course covers the essential elements of storytelling and will help lay the foundations for a strong short story or personal essay. From plot to point-of-view, each class explores a key building block of narrative. Guided by engaging prompts, discussion, and readings from writers like Anne Lamott, David Sedaris and Junot Díaz, you’ll generate raw material and leave inspired to keep writing. You’ll also have the opportunity to share work in a supportive environment. Beginners welcome!
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
