Course Catalog


All Levels | All around us there is war, death, grief, and terror. There is also beauty, love, understanding, nature, and the natural world. When we focus on the latter, it releases something in us that is intangible. We are reminded that we are not separate from the earth but are of it. In this workshop, we’ll analyze poems by Camille T. Dungy, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, Jorie Graham, and Reginald Shepherd, among others, and we’ll write in response to prompts that cultivate our understanding of what it means to be “in awe.”

This class will open for registration on 12/7.

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.
