Online | This class will build upon craft learned in Poetry I and II. Students can expect close readings of mentor texts from a wide range of contemporary poets, advanced forms and prompts, discussions of poetic techniques and workshops of participants’ poems. We will also explore craft issues, advanced generative techniques like poetic sequences and research, as well as different approaches to revision and publishing, all with an eye towards strengthening your poetic practice and building a strong body of work.
This course takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and classes can be done at your own pace throughout the week.
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.
