Travel Journal in Poems

What better way to travel than by the prismatic deep glance of poetry? We will practice writing the deft fragment of witness that happens in poems—as they might be written while traveling, or in recollection of incandescent moments from a past journey, or in preparation for a quest: write to sharpen your anticipation, then go. By writing, you cease to be a tourist, and become instead a seeker, vagabond, pilgrim. This is a generative writing workshop. Open to all writers.

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.
