Level: Intermediate
Adult (18+)
12 seats max

This is a class about break-ups, death, migrations, the end of the world. The end. *The end.* How do you write the end? We’ll spend this class figuring it out. Each week, we’ll read a story that shows a different end. We’ll look at how writers write nuclear apocalypse, ghosts, leaving home for a new, uncertain future. We’ll look at how writers actually *end* their stories by paying close attention to craft. We’ll practice writing ends of our own, with opportunities to share work. Possible authors we’ll consult include: Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah, Peter Orner, Viet Thanh Nguyen, and Yiyun Li, among others. 

This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.

For a glimpse at how remote learning works, look no further than the deep Zoom discussion of writing and literature below:
