This is a beginner’s class for those interested in writing poems. Previous experience with poetry isn’t required, although all levels are welcome. Part seminar, part workshop. We’ll discuss the foundations of poetry — line, metaphor, image, sound, etc., through reading and discussion. We’ll examine poems by Jean Follain, Karl Krolow, William Meredith, W.S. Merwin, and Denise Levertov, among others, and write and share new poems based on this engagement.
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.
