Bring the Kids: Writing for Parents

Seriously, bring the kids (under 10) to this reading and writing workshop for poets, fiction writers, and essayists. We’ll read and discuss some short works by writers who wrote notable works while they had young children such as Grace Paley, Shirley Jackson, Rachel Zucker, Robert Frost, J. Robert Lennon, and others. Taking our cues from these writers, we will write a few new poems/stories/essays and share and discuss them, building toward new revisions and exploring avenues for publication. We’ll have activities and assistance to occupy the children while we work.

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.
