Master Class: The Hidden Architecture of the Poem

All poems have a structure, even free-verse poems that seem to range around with no apparent form. Bring three new poems you’re struggling to complete – drafts that just won’t seem to fall into place – and we’ll bring out our new tools and get to work.

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.
