Dear Friend: Writing Letters, Writing Poems

All Levels | Using “Envelopes of Air” poems/letters between Natalie Diaz and Ada Limón as a starting point, we will explore how writing letters and writing poems have been intertwined for hundreds of years. This friendly, informal writing workshop is perfect for people who love to write letters or people who are curious about writing their own poems. There will be prompts to get you started on your writing journey. No experience needed.

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.
