How the Body Holds Its Stories: An Embodied Writing Workshop

All Levels | How do our bodies hold on to experiences? In this course, writers will come together to consider the physical act of writing—how we translate embodied knowledge into language on the page. By moving our bodies and engaging our senses, we will generate new writing that touches on our vulnerability and articulates hard-to-reach memories. Writers of all genres encouraged to participate; there is something for the poet, memoirist, and fiction writer in this class.

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.
