Course Catalog

Ordering Poems for Submission and Publishing

All Levels | Bring ten pages of your poems. We’ll discuss and practice techniques for ordering manuscripts for submission to journals, contests, and chapbook/book publishing. We’ll look at what the arc of a series or book can tell us about individual poems, and explore techniques for writing with a series or larger project in mind. You’ll then put together a packet of five poems to submit to the journal of your choice. This class includes a lunch break.

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.
