All Levels | “A lane of Yellow led the eye…” -Emily Dickinson
As the light lengthens its autumnal slant, it’s the perfect time to reawaken color in our writing. Drawing from artistic, literary, and scientific texts for inspiration — as well as our own experiences and imagination — we’ll expand our synesthetic palette and experiment with a prismatic array of generative in-class prompts. Awaken your senses and writing life! Slanted toward poetry; all genres welcome.
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.
