Homes and Homelands: Exploring Belonging Through Writing

Note: These class dates have been updated from the print catalog.

All Levels. This course will be a combination of reading analysis and writing workshop for those writers who are working on immigrant experiences or exploring other forms of belonging. Using excerpts from the writings of such authors as Jhumpa Lahiri, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Salman Rushdie, this course explores what homes and homelands mean to writers and how race, place, and space intersect in writing.

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.
