Intermediate | In this class we’ll explore more ways to get poetry revving on the page and experiment with a variety of “machine[s] made of words” (W.C. Williams) to expand our ideas of what a poem can be (including prose poems, calligrams, some traditional forms, and associative verse). With a focus on in-class writing prompts and reading, by the end you’ll have a portfolio of new work and more fuel for keeping your writing going.
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.
