Writing the Vignette

All Levels | Vignettes are fun and satisfying “blips” of writing. They’re generally considered prose but tend toward poetry. And they don’t necessarily “go” anywhere, but, when artfully roped together, have created some truly astonishing longer works, including The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros and An American Childhood Annie Dillard. This 4-week workshop examines and celebrates this small, vibrant unit of fiction. Fiction writers, memoirists, and poets who are looking to transition to prose are encouraged to register.

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.
