Poetic Movements in the City

Taking a cue from CA Conrad’s (Soma)tic Poetry Rituals (find them at somaticpoetryexercises.blogspot.com), participants will engage in somatic poetry “rituals” to be mindful of the present moment and “reveal the creative viability of everything” around them. It’s summer! So, we’ll traipse together, using the city as our inspiration, to explore our outer and inner landscapes. This class is for folks who want to shake up their practice, write new work, and have fun!

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.
