Writing a World of Wonders

All Levels | Aimee Nezhukumatathil describes wonder as surprise—when one’s curiosity is, “confronted with something unfamiliar or unexpected and that sense of curiosity turns into joy and excitement.” We will immerse ourselves in her book World of Wonders: In Praise of Fireflies, Whale Sharks, and Other Astonishments, then generate our own wonder-fueled writing from in-class prompts and exercises. Poets and prose writers welcome. Students will leave with a collection of inspired new work and the option for an instructor conference.

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.
