Among Animals: Living With and Writing About Species Other Than Our Own

All Levels | A marmoset joins Virginia and Leonard Woolf’s household in Sigrid Nunez’s Mitz: The Marmoset of Bloomsbury; a falconer bonds with a goshawk after her father’s death in H is for Hawk. Dogs see Jennifer Finney Boylan and Deborah Thompson through grief, change, and crisis in a series of essays. Each of these pieces speaks to the power of other species to awaken us to vulnerability—but also to joy, freedom, and grace. Alongside reading and discussing writing across genres, we’ll enjoy writing exercises about or including species other than our own.

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.
