Writing Maximalist Prose

All Levels | For writers interested in achieving higher levels of specificity in their work, this class will explore literary maximalism, a style that favors digression, reference, and elaborate detail. In addition to studying examples from Karen Tei Yamashita, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, Lucy Ellmann, and William Faulkner, we’ll also undertake in-class and take-home writing exercises that will encourage maximalist modes of expression.

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.
