This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
Intermediate | In this nonfiction workshop, we will investigate the narrator as more than a voice. Who is being presented? Is the narrative voice different than the character performing in the plot? How does the narrator appear physically? In an attempt to understand who the “I” is and how best to present yourself to readers, we will investigate work by Mary Karr, Dave Eggers, James Baldwin, Anne Lamott, and others. Students will leave with two developed essays and extensive instructor feedback.
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.
