Concept Album: Generating a Sequence of Poems

All Levels | Some of the most powerful albums feature a song cycle revolving around a central theme. Th e tracks work individually but build a larger meaning when the sequence is heard in full. In this class, we’ll explore a question or idea through a sequence of poems. We’ll generate poems through games and other methods, dive into mentor texts, and research to inspire a series of linked poems.

The dates for this class have been updated from the print catalog.

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.
