Course Catalog

Master Class in Poetry

This will be a workshop for those who have committed themselves to the work of both reading and writing poetry. Within it we will make new work in response to existing forms, as well as revise older, unfinished work in a collaborative workshop setting. Our class will examine what strong poetry does — and also what it still might do. As in any workshop setting, we will learn as much from the successes and failures of others’ work as we do from our own experiments. Previous workshop experience necessary.

No class April 20.

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.
