All classes are in Pacific Time. 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.

Abby E. Murray

Abby E. Murray earned her MFA from Pacific University and PhD from Binghamton University. She is the editor of Collateral, a literary journal concerned with the impact of violent conflict and military service beyond the combat zone. Her first book of poems, Hail and Farewell, won the 2019 Perugia Press Poetry Prize and was a finalist for the Washington State Book Award. Wherever she goes, she teaches poetry and writing workshops for veterans, service members, and their families, as well as detained youth and immigrants, and she loves listening to them read their work in public forums. She teaches argumentative writing in military strategy for Army War College officers on fellowship at the University of Washington, and she recently finished her term as poet laureate for the city of Tacoma. She now lives in Washington DC.
