All Levels | “The moon making a poem possible… what can we say about that?” — Mary Ruefle
This generative class features eclectic writing experiments inspired by scientific, esoteric, and mythological ideas about the moon to jump-start our creativity and playfully upend clichés, culminating in a small folio of new lunar-infused work. Most writing happens in class with some observation homework to continue momentum; optional one-on-one conference at end. Slanted toward poetry but open to all genres.
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.
