We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

Fall 2020: Nine-Month Novel Intensive

September 16, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

This course for dedicated writers is designed to guide you through the writing and/or revising of your novel. It begins in September, with the goal of completing a draft of a novel, or rewriting a draft of a novel, by May. You’ll read excerpts from published novels by authors including Han Kang, Tommy Orange, Lina Meruane, Mitchell S. Jackson, Deborah Levy, and Susan Steinberg, as well as craft essays by authors including Dorothy Allison, Jane Alison, and Alexander Chee. Some weeks you’ll have craft assignments to complete outside of class, and other weeks we’ll do in-class exercises together. After the first month of meetings, two students will workshop each week.

Though it is not a prerequisite, students who have taken “Writing a Novel in 8 weeks” or “Starting the Novel” at Literary Arts should find this class an appropriate next step.

Download the syllabus for Nine-month online novel intensive here.  Please note: this writing class is designed for adults 18 years and older.

Wednesdays, September 16, 2020 – May 19, 2021
6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Pacific Time (class meets 29 times)
