Discovering Poetic Voice

All Levels | All poets write with influence: what we read, conversations, the interests of the world around us—each serves as an outside influence. The voice is the inside influence. To make a poem truly good, the voice must rise through the fray, wearing those other words like a coat but still allowing the voiced body to be visible, heard. In this generative class, we’ll read, write, and workshop—practicing talk, observation, and listening—to create poems that speak with our own poetic voice.

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.
