The Ladder of Love: Writing Platonic Relationships

All Levels | Gail Caldwell once noted that “writing about a friendship that flourished within the realm of connection and routine has all the components of trying to capture air. We were the lattice that made room for the rose.” By combining close readings with a series of in-class prompts, we will learn how to root platonic relationships in your story so that they blossom. You will come away with new pages, fresh perspectives, and a generative understanding of Diotima’s ladder of love. This class will include a break for lunch.

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.
