Writing Delight: Reading & Writing from Ross Gay’s “The Book of Delights”

All Levels | Part reading and discussion group, part generative writing class, 100 percent delightful. Each week, we’ll read a portion of Ross Gay’s acclaimed collection of flash nonfiction, The Book of Delights. We’ll spend class time in guided discussion, generating delight-centric writing of our own through weekly prompts and cultivating a sense of wonder, attention, and awe as we go.

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.
