Course Catalog

Advanced Poetry Workshop

Advanced. The aim of this poetry workshop will be to help the students, regardless of age or previous experience, work toward writing the best poems they can write. The instructor will offer examples from poetry of the past and present and will ask the students to bring some examples from their own reading, but the main work will be critiquing each other’s poems. The instructor will try to help reinforce the connections between sound, rhythm, and meaning and will make a number of suggestions about working methods, revision, and self-criticism.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
