Writing Restorative Justice

All Levels | Juliana Spahr’s 2001 collection of poems, Fuck You—Aloha—I Love You, explores themes of connection and separation, shifting its gaze from insider to outsider. Her poetic drive toward community collaboration will be this course’s ethos. Our restorative writing practice will center connection rather than isolation, seeking relationship rather than harm in the process of writing into social issues. Students will read writing across genres from authors such as jayy dodd, Ross Gay, Joy Harjo, Lena Khalaf Tuffaha, June Jordan, and Louise Erdrich.

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.
