Course Catalog

Unpacking the Vastness of Masculinity

All Levels | We’ll discuss masculine identity through the lens of a queer perspective, using excerpts from Stone Butch Blues, 100 Crushes, Blues Divine, Insubordinate, Pansy, & More Black, and Nightsong in addition to social media and pop culture references. We will interrogate toxic masculinity and our own defining journey through the literary form of poetry, nonfiction, and short fiction.

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.
