Course Catalog

Precarios

Presented in partnership with The Henry Art Gallery.

Inspired by the work of interdisciplinary artist and poet Cecilia Vicuña, this writing workshop will be held among the “Precarios” installation at the Henry Art Gallery. Through reading and discussion, we will consider the power of naming what has been lost or discarded, and of holding the energy of both elegy and renewal simultaneously. Participants are encouraged to bring one poem, paragraph, or idea that has been previously discounted in their personal archives for this (re)generative writing session. Readings will be focused on poetry but experimental writers of all genres will be at home in this workshop.

This class takes place at the Henry Art Gallery | 15th Ave NE & NE 41st St University of Washington campus, Seattle, WA 98195

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.
