Course Catalog

For Poetry: A Workshop

Advanced | Designed for those with workshop experience, this class will create a supportive, constructively critical workshop aimed to help students make their poetry the best it can be. To inspire generative prompts, we’ll read Reginald Shepherd, Marilyn Chin, and Qwo-Li Driskill. Students will have 3–4 poems workshopped, and all are expected to provide specific, useful written comments for others’ poetry. All will finish the course with practical and energizing ideas for how to make their poems shine.

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.
