Write Like Murakami

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | Murakami’s short fiction is known for its anonymous protagonists, enigmatic conversations, open-ended mysteries, and for combining the surreal with the quotidian. In this class, we’ll explore what makes these elements resonant and effective, looking closely at representative work like “Burning” and “New York Mining Disaster.” Through discussion, writing exercises, and instructor feedback, each student will work towards producing a full draft of their own Murakami- esque story. Cats and ghosts welcome.

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.
