Ways of Seeing: What Can the Photo Tell Us?

All Levels | What can photography teach us about writing? How can we use photographs and photographic concepts—the frame, the flash, depth of field—in our writing? We’ll explore how looking at photos and thinking photographically can shift perspective and expand our literary toolbox. Each week we’ll read work by such writers as Rebecca Solnit, Teju Cole, John Berger, and Judith Kitchen, and apply what we learn. Participants can use the class to generate new work or take a new approach to ongoing projects.

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.
