All Levels | For writers interested in achieving higher levels of specificity in their work, this class will explore literary maximalism, a style that favors digression, reference, and elaborate detail. In addition to studying examples from Karen Tei Yamashita, David Foster Wallace, and William Faulkner, we’ll also undertake in-class writing exercises that will encourage maximalist modes of expression.
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.
