Course Catalog

Extraordinary Poems in Ordinary Moments

In this walking-and-writing class, students will traverse the city, find points of interest, and turn such moments into poems. By studying published poems that detail moments in a range of ways, then walking, looking, and discovering poetic occurrences, students will find ways to say the unsayable. Mentor texts include works by C. D. Wright, John Hollander, Suji Kwock Kim, Tracy K. Smith, Jericho Brown, and Louise Glück. All will finish the course with four to six new poems.

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.
