We will explore memoirs that are told in a nonlinear, lyrical, fragmented fashion. Each week, we will read excerpts from writers such as Lidia Yuknavitch, Abigail Thomas, Nick Flynn, and Sarah Manguso, examining how they weave together their memories, themes, metaphors, and multiple point of views into a rich, complex whole. We will also explore the potential theme(s) and structures that exist in our own memoirs-in-progress by utilizing in-class freewriting, discussion, and a respectful workshopping process.
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.
