Daily Writing in the Spirit of William Stafford

You don’t eat just once every few days. You don’t speak just every week or so. Learning is continuous, and hunger is closer to breathing than to an annual rite. So why not write daily? We will feed on examples from the daily writing of William Stafford, and practice in the spirit of his work. The emphasis will be on the process of creation: creating texts the length of poems but for use in multiple genres. The goal will be to know what it feels like — in the body and in acts of sustaining witness — to practice the continuous writing life you have imagined.

 

This class meets on Saturday and Sunday, April 12-13

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.
