In the Groove: Poems and Music

All Levels | We’re going to listen to tunes, read some jazz and blues poems from stellar practitioners, and write and share some of our own responses in class. Want to bring music into your readings, at open mics or gigs? I’ll give you some useful tips from my experiences making music and collaborating with musicians. No musical skills required! Just bring your ears.

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.
