Course Catalog

Omissions Are Not Accidents

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | This three-hour intensive workshop will be focused on revision techniques. Come prepared with several poems that need work. We’re going to help you consider their strengths and give you several prompts to help you optimize their potential. You may not have to kill your darlings — but you have to be willing to cut into them to see them anew.

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.
