Family Stories, a free webinar at Hugo House

When: Saturday, January 30, 2021 @ 1:10pm – 4:10pm. Free. Register HERE.

Where: Hugo House, Seattle, WA via Zoom

As Wendell Berry wrote, “The world is full of places. Why is it that I am here?” In this single session, you will begin laying the foundation of your family story — origins, questions, and artifacts — so that you may continue building your project with focus and intention. We’ll look at ways to start letting go of what you already know about your family history in order to discover what you want to find out. Come prepared to read, write, discuss, and embrace the importance of your family story!

The Ladder of Love: Writing Platonic Relationships, a creative non-fiction workshop at Hugo House

Where: Hugo House, Seattle, WA via Zoom

Gail Caldwell once noted that “writing about a friendship that flourished within the realm of connection and routine has all the components of trying to capture air. We were the lattice that made room for the rose.” By combining close readings with a series of in-class prompts, we will learn how to root platonic relationships in your story so that they blossom. You will come away with new pages, fresh perspectives, and a generative understanding of Diotima’s ladder of love. This class will include a break for lunch.

Agnotology is the study of ignorance, how it is produced and maintained, what is lost and forgotten, and most importantly, why. What drops—or is dropped—from the historical record? What has gone missing, and whose agenda do those gaps and holes serve? You could say that agnotology is the study of what isn’t.
