What has been the role of the girl in contemporary literature? Do girls have subjectivity? Authority? Adventure? We will engage with the contemporary canon of girlhood and female coming-of-age, learning from it as well as pushing against it. We will be aware that we are writing outside of our current experience; be we men or women, we are not girls. We will use our imaginations as we practice the key craft elements of voice, narration, plot, and theme. Come with your story, poem, or idea—or with just pen and paper. We will write and revise. We will create characters who engage and defy.
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.
