Writing Utopia (ASYNCHRONOUS)

All Levels | Imagining utopia is a radical act of optimism — arguably we need more than ever. Referencing works by Thomas More, Voltaire, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Ursula LeGuin, Ryka Aoki, Natasha Marin, and others, we’ll jump-start our own writing. You will play, write, and come away with some fragments to rework later. You might even start a novel. Anything is possible in utopia.

This class takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and sessions can be completed at your own pace throughout the week.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
