CLASS UPDATE: This class will now be taking place online, on Zoom. This has been updated from the print catalog.
All Levels | This class will draw inspiration from the anthology Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements. We will discuss stories; share our knowledge of and experience in social justice movements; and learn how to craft speculative narratives that center justice, resistance, and liberation. Students will have the opportunity to write their own work inspired by the anthology.
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.
