Blood, Rust & Bone: Writing the Broken Body

All Levels | We will explore the Broken Body as a portal, an entry into the sacred in poems and prose. What is it about what is broken that opens us to an altered state of awareness? How does brokenness invoke ritual? Bring power to our writing? There will be a craft talk followed by a writing prompt and the opportunity to explore what we’ve learned and bring it to the page.

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.
