Course Catalog

The Geography of Home (ZOOM)

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | This class will illuminate the landscapes and dwellings we inhabit and how they inform our personal narratives. Whether you’re from another country, have lived in one house forever, or you relocate often, we’ll explore the notion of home and why our writing draws us back to geographies that have shaped us, changed us. Place can also offer you structure and form. We will be working from Zoom, so collective group time will be balanced with writing time and private conferences. You will leave with three new scenes and new grounding for your memoir. Expect surprise.

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.
