“The moon making a poem possible… what can we say about that?” -Mary Ruefle All Levels | 50 years after the lunar landing, let’s look toward the moon anew. This generative class, open to all genres, features eclectic writing experiments inspired by scientific, esoteric, and mythological ideas about the moon to jump-start our creativity and playfully upend cliches. The class will culminate in a small folio of new lunar-infused work. Most writing will take place in class with some observation homework; there will be an optional conference with the instructor at the end.
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.
