Course Catalog

Imitation Game

In this generative writing course, we will learn the art of imitation by examining the unfolding lyricism and logic inside extraordinary poems we read together in class. We will then draft poems mimicking one or more technique, jolting our creativity via unexpected prompts and drafting strategies. Students will leave with at least three new drafts and a method of reading that can become a lifelong first step toward writing new poems.

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.
