Generating Poems: Writing Alongside Local Poets

By writing alongside four local poets, we’ll draw inspiration from the notion that poetry begins at home. We’ll also invite these poets to visit our class, read from their work, and talk to us. These close-to-home encounters will help us begin to understand the range of perspectives, histories, and typographies that combine to create the intellectual and esthetic world of Seattle as it exists today. You will receive weekly prompts. Scheduled guests include Kary Wayson and Matthew Henriksen.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
