Intro to Poetry

Have you always wanted to write a poem or composed a few and want to know how to improve them? Then this class is for you. It will cover the elements of poetry: sound and rhythm, images and metaphor, speakers, and the shapes of poems. There will be weekly reading and writing assignments, along with in-class discussions and critiques of your 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.
