Writing About Friendship

All Levels | Friendships aren’t always taken as seriously in our culture as romantic or familial bonds, but they can be every bit as meaningful, dynamic, and complicated. In this class, we’ll consider ways of representing these relationships and their power on the page. We’ll look to other writers for inspiration, and we’ll explore style, language, and form as we write and revise our own stories of friendship (whether fiction or nonfiction) in a supportive workshop setting.

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.
