The Language of Loss: Creativity in Response to Grief

All Levels. What role does creative expression play in navigating grief, and why are we compelled to offer eulogies in memory of those we have lost? This generative writing class will examine creativity as part of the process of mourning and will draw from a multidisciplinary reading list of essays, comics, poetry, and short stories created in response to loss.

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.

Tessa Hulls

Tessa Hulls is an artist/writer/adventurer who is fascinated by the concept of home. As the daughter of two first-generation immigrants who landed in a tiny town of 350 people, she spent her formative years reading her way through the public library and roaming alone through the hills, and this love of solitude and forward motion informs much of her creative practice. Tessa is a compulsive genre hopper and has worked in various capacities as an illustrator, cartoonist, editor, performer, chef, muralist, conductor of social experiments, painter, writer, and teacher for The Henry Art Gallery, On the Boards, The Seattle Art Museum, The Project Room, Washington Ensemble Theater, Vermillion, 826 Seattle, Annex Theater, Microsoft Research, Lit Crawl, Hugo House, Sprout Seattle, Canoe Social Club, City Arts, Smoke Farm, Cafe Nordo, The Breadline Performance Series, and others. She has received grants from Washington Artist Trust, the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, and 4Culture
