Finding Inspiration in Other Forms

All Levels | From Robert Frost to Natasha Trethewey, writers have used non-textbased art forms to inspire them for generations. This generative workshop will explore ekphrastic poetry — responding to visual art, music, and dance. Over the sessions of the course, students will generate new work from prompts inspired by non-literary mediums and give and receive feedback from peers.

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.
