Through reading, discussion, and workshop, we will explore the wilderness where short prose-poems meet concise lyrical essays and micro-narratives. Writers at every level will study the anatomy, behavior, and language of nonfiction miniatures like poem-essay hybrids. The expedition may encounter sharp-toothed truth, winged lyricism, and mini-memoirs traveling in book-length flocks. Writing prompts will help us capture these creatures. Our guides will include Judith Kitchen, Lia Purpura, Diane Seuss, and the king of brevity, Dinty W. Moore.
No class Nov. 29
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.
