Voice Lessons

All Levels | “In our marginal existence, what else is there but this voice within us, this great weirdness we are always leaning forward to listen to?” Mary Ruefle

In writing, voice is a combination of your experiences, obsessions, heartbreaks, joys, etc. Explore the range of your writing voice through close reading and mimicry of/homage to writers with signature sounds such as Lucia Berlin, James Baldwin, and Jenny Zhang. Come away with fresh ideas for new and existing work.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
