Course Catalog

Poems of Praise

In this intensive course, we will invigorate our poems and our writing lives with a focus on the everyday and the extraordinary, from food to loss. Students will write toward odes to everyday things in the spirit of Neruda and Lucille Clifton; we will also address poems to lost places and people, as a way of finding voices and tones that are our own. The result is less a poetry workshop than a lab for living.

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.
