Poetry as a Waking Dream

In many poems, dream imagery and archetypal journeys or predicaments create a state similar to that between sleeping and waking. We’ll read dream-like poems to serve as models from writers such as Mahmoud Darwish, Rodger Kamenetz, William Blake, and C.D. Wright and then write in class, focusing on using associations and imagery to craft poems whose resolutions arise from dream logic.

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.
