Fact vs. Truth in Memoir

Touching on memory, he said/she said, and the side-scan sonar treatment in writing from a distance, Domingo Martinez will discuss the difference between what’s right, what’s true, what’s correct, and what’s just wrong when writing nonfiction from personal experience in a one-hour lecture, followed by a review of contributions from participants. Students are encouraged to submit a single chapter or 300-500 word piece for peer review two weeks beforehand.

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.
