Think With Words

Susan Sontag wrote in her journal, “Learn how to write. Think with words, not with ideas.” Using games and props to prompt writing, this class will help you follow your thoughts with words. Whether you’re writing fiction, nonfiction, screenplays, plays, or poetry, you’ll be given the space, time, and format to generate words on the page. You’ll focus on the words; from there, the ideas will come.

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.
