All Levels. Emily Dickinson writes of our aural power as poets: “As all the Heavens were a Bell, / And Being, but an Ear.” This course focuses on the craft of sound in poetry, from Dickinson’s slant rhymes to Kevin Young’s blues rhythms to Lo Kwa Mei-en’s repetition and cacophony. We will be reading and writing our own poems, paying close attention to sound and meter. Prepare to read and write out loud.
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.
