Pausing our usual vocabularies in favor of a giddy, intuitive stumbling, we’ll make new poems by erasing, obscuring, and masking old text. Each student will generate a beautiful, seemingly impenetrable question or choose a koan (paradoxical statement) to explore through writing. Allowing this question to germinate while also forgetting about it, we will make new erasure poems meant to be tilted, vibrant responses to our inquiry. Expect to write five new poems. We’ll read the work of Tom Phillips, Matthea Harvey, Mary Ruefle, Ronald Johnson, and Jen Bervin.
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.
