Course Catalog

The Poetry of the Sentence

Writers who work between prose and poetry will delight in this class, which seeks to explore the infinite possibilities of the poetic sentence. What happens when we stop over-steering the sentence and allow for multiple landscapes and interior investigations? Trusting the stumbles, we might expose glowing gaps of truth, longing, and attention. Class will include readings, generative prompts, and a mini-workshop. Readings include work by Gertrude Stein, Renee Gladman, Bhanu Kapil, and more.

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.
