Before this intensive workshop for poets at any stage of poetic development, students will submit 3-5 poems and we will spend the week in a mixture of critique, discussion of interesting and recent poetry, and writing new poems. We will tackle difficulties and try to find ways to write poems that are fresh and original, that show mastery and struggle, are built to last, are brave, and are filled with passion and emotion and feeling.
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.
Ed Skoog is the author of four books of poems, most recently Travelers Leaving for the City (Copper Canyon Press, 2020). His poems have appeared in The New Yorker, Harper’s, The New Republic and elsewhere. He is a former writer-in-residence at Hugo House.
