All Levels | How do we read and write about those peoples and cultures different from our own? What does it take to read and write intersectionally? How do we reach a diverse audience? Recognize the pitfalls of cultural appropriation, exoticism, and tokenism that unwittingly lead even the most well-intentioned writer into difficulties. Read and discuss examples from Junot Díaz, Toni Morrison, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, and others. There will also be opportunities to workshop your own 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.
