Course Catalog

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.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
