Course Catalog

The Grand Tour

On our world tour of innovative and overlooked literature, we will slip past the arbitrary borders drawn by the canon to encounter foreign poetic forms and tour translated innovations in fiction and nonfiction. We will examine riddle poems, list essays, and the travelogue memoirs of transnational writers. Each student will be prompted to smuggle new skills into their writing and to bring new work to one of our weekly workshops.

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.
