The Country You Come From: Exploring Your Sense of Place

All Levels | In this generative workshop for all prose writers and poets, we will compile a list of place indicators, explore your own home-grounds from which your best writing emerges, and do exercises that demonstrate the way writers and poets can utilize place to solve many writing challenges. The goal for all participants is to return home able to view your writing through an earth-and-place-centric lens.

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.
