Intermediate | Italo Calvino writes: “digression is a strategy for putting off the ending, a multiplying of time within the work, a perpetual evasion or flight.” In this workshop we will explore strategies for taking our time in a poem, as a way to delay and enhance the power of the ending. We will experiment with techniques and read work by Ellen Bass, Ross Gay, Diane Seuss, and others who employ meandering in order to widen the possibilities of a narrative.
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.
