Course Catalog

The Joy of Syntax

In this hands-on workshop we’ll practice improvisational writing, using the often under-explored resources of syntax to draw our poems and stories into new territories.

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.
