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 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.
