The Language of Ability and Disability

Intermediate | The words we use reflect assumptions about the rules of the worlds we create. This class will focus on word choice as it concerns characters and settings and how our assumptions about ability and disability creep into our language. We’ll explore ways to intentionally push back against those assumptions to write a world that is more inclusive by looking at model texts and sharing our work in (optional) critique.

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.
