The Long Game: Foundations of Creative Practice

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

All Levels | A generative intensive establishes the foundations for a consistent creative practice. From making a commitment to your writer self to forming a creative habit, this course focuses on generating new work and developing critical and editorial skills in a community setting. Drawing instruction from writing guides such as Anne Lamott, Walter Mosley, and Julia Cameron, we’ll also draw inspiration reading selections from a range of living writers, from Danez Smith and N.K. Jemisin to Carmen Maria Machado and Ijeoma Oluo.

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.
