If style is the carriage of the mind, as some writers have said, then great writing must be like Grand Theft Auto. In this generative class, we’ll examine the styles of writers we love. Then we’ll break into their garages (metaphorically) and take their cars out for a spin. We’ll practice stealing what we love in the service of writing poems that perfect strangers will love and want to take from. We’ll learn from John Donne, Philip Larkin, Eduardo C. Corral, Roger Reeves, Dora Malech, Sandra Beasley, Jim Harrison, Sylvia Plath, and more. All levels of experience welcome.
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.
