Writing Addiction

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

All Levels | Stories of addiction and recovery often follow a familiar fall-and-rise template that’s true in broad form but lacks the specific, nonconforming details and quirks of voice that make stories authentic and memorable. In this class, we’ll look at work from writers who have pushed past standard themes and language to tell addiction stories only they could tell, and we’ll generate new work of our own. Expect a playful, supportive, and craft-focused approach. (And a big-tent definition of addiction/recovery — substances, sex, gambling, you name it.)

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.
