Earth Verse: Writing for the Earth

All Levels | When trouble comes in the human world, there may be a story from the wild that can offer consolation. From the Gnomic Verses in Old English to the Tao te Ching and the works of Dorothy Wordsworth, Emily Dickinson, and Mary Oliver, we have cherished lyric remedies speaking the language of earth. In this class, we will harvest close observations from your landscapes and compose an archive of blessings, consolations, and manifestos for use as need comes.

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.
