Course Catalog

Your First Poetry Book

This class has been updated from the print catalog. The schedule is now Sundays, 10am-12pm.

You have written a group of poems or have begun thinking of your first poetry book. Alongside a poet currently in the process of publishing a first book, the class will tackle structural and narrative themes while generating new poems to grow your collection. Expect to dive into discussion and brave new ideas, challenge your poems, and emerge with both courage and knowledge to complete your first book.

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.
