Unlike other mediums, writing knows how to treat time. It lets it behave the way it is, allowing it to rush forward or backward, compress or elongate. Writing lets it be its wily self. In this class, we'll look at examples of the representation of time from published work, such as Alexander Chee's Edinburgh, Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse, Alice Munro's The Progressive of Love, and others. You'll write passages, trying out the various techniques of how to let time exist fluidly on the page.

Nina Schuyler is the author of Afterword, a novel that explores artificial intelligence, love, privacy, human-machine relationships, and women in technology. She teaches creative writing at Stanford Continuing Education and the University of San Francisco
