Writing About Past Travels

Intermediate | “We travel, initially, to lose ourselves. And we travel, next, to find ourselves,” writes Pico Iyer. Let’s take that second journey: visit your inward passages by writing a travel essay about past travels. Pack your memories, memorabilia, journal entries, library cards, and beloved dreams. We’ll spend six weeks dissecting various structures of travel essays while writing our own. The determined will complete a full draft to pitch for publication; all will enjoy the views from retrospect.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
