Online Class | #OwnVoices: Digital Storytelling

All Levels | Digital storytelling—the single or combined use of text, images, video, audio, social media (like ‘tweets’ or ‘bookstagrams’), or interactive elements (such as live chats)—is a powerful way to showcase diverse narratives. This course will focus on how to craft such elements to authentically produce and share our own #OwnVoices digital stories, as well as explore additional aspects of online media to help you explore which tools are right for you. This course takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and classes can be done at your own pace throughout the week.

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.
