Putting the Strange in Your Story

A man made famous for playing a vampire on TV is haunted by a real ghost; something is wrong at a contemporary boarding school that feels like it’s stuck in the Victorian era; a giant man swims upstream in an ice-cold river. The unusual is thriving in contemporary storytelling. Is art imitating our strange times? We will look at work from writers such as Kelly Link, Helen Oyeyemi, and Yoko Ogawa, and consider how the strange can get us closer to the truth. Expect to begin a new story.

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.
