Generating Poems: Writing Alongside Local Poets

By writing alongside four local poets, we’ll draw inspiration from the notion that poetry begins at home. We’ll also invite these poets to visit our class, read from their work, and talk to us. These close-to-home encounters will help us begin to understand the range of perspectives, histories, and typographies that combine to create the intellectual and esthetic world of Seattle as it exists today. You will receive weekly prompts. Scheduled guests include Kary Wayson and Matthew Henriksen.

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.
