All levels | During this workshop, students with experience in creative nonfiction will further explore the genre by reading work that incorporates research, data, and other sources. Students will write and share their work while discussing texts. We will also discuss research methods and resources, citations, and how to add quantitative data to stories in compelling ways. Class work will include discussing reading (e.g., John McPhee, Amy Leach, Ta-Nehisi Coates), and producing a creative portfolio. Students will produce several medium-length essays culminating in a final long-form piece of writing incorporating research.
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.
