Writing with Maggie Nelson

All Levels | In this course, we’ll study the encyclopedic brilliance and critical skills of Maggie Nelson, award-winning writer of essential books such as The Argonauts, Bluets, and The Art of Cruelty: A Reckoning. We will explore how Nelson pieces together her own genre(s) through fierce yet vulnerable politics, poetics, and engaged literary theory. Together we will generate our own writing and experience the magic of what literature can be and mean as a cultural powerhouse.

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.
