Introductory/Intermediate | Students will generate 4-6 new poems, participate in workshop, and submit work to a literary journal for publication. We’ll read and write in response to a wide array of contemporary poets, becoming familiar along the way with the literary journals to which we aspire. Poets we read express diverse viewpoints and include Ross Gay, Solmaz Sharif, Dorothea Lasky, and Ocean Vuong. All will finish the class by sending at least one submission, which will include a new, strong cover letter.
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.
