Writing Out of Context

All Levels. What does it take to break out of the confines of conventional prose to create something more dynamic? We will experiment with spontaneous writing, word collage, errors of interpretation, lies, gossip, truth-telling, collaborative writing, gaps between time and space, and any other surprises that help us out of our habits for a few hours of playful writing exercises. Anything could happen, really—let’s have some fun.

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.
