Course Catalog

Visual Poetry Laboratory

Create new collaborative and individual writing with text and visual work, plus a mini-zine celebrating our collective efforts by weekend’s end. We’ll look at work by artists such as Julie Doucet, Phillip Guston, Nedko Solakov, Raymond Pettibon, and William Steig for inspiration, and we’ll experiment in the lab with collaged words, construction paper, constellations, and Surrealist-style translations. Open to writers and artists at all levels of experience.

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.
