Graduate Campus, York 101

This course will bring together writers, educators, counselors, and graduate students to read and write about diverse cultural stories. We will draw from work by Zadie Smith, Jhumpa Lahiri, Richard Rodriguez, Francine Prose, and others. 

Participants will write from their own cultural backgrounds to uncover how different world views shape the reading and writing experience, exploring multiple dimensions of language.

  • Northwest Writing Institute classes are offered to teachers, counselors, parents, veterans, and all community members interested in the power of stories to help us understand and practice human connections for the good of all.
