Writing alongside Local Poets: Choi, Mangold, Wong, and Zaher

All Levels | We’ll read and write poems inspired by the work of four contemporary poets particularly concerned with community and exile; self and world; wounds and resilience. Weekly prompts and read-arounds of participants’ poems. Feedback from instructor. Required Texts: DMZ Colony by Don Mee Choi (Wave Books, 2020); Giraffes of Devotion by Sarah Mangold (Kore Press, 2016); Over Pour by Jane Wong (Action Books, 2016); and The Consequences of my Body by Maged Zaher (Nightboat Books, 2016).

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.
