Course Catalog

Poetry as Parts of Self

We will write drafts of new poems while we explore, in meditation and thought exercises, our inner selves: the child, adult, and spiritual voice in our work. The class will begin with a conversation about what poetry means to us and move from there into our greater exploration of the day.

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.
