Jumpstart Your Poems & Prose (ZOOM)

All Levels | Join us for a fun and lively series of prompts that include varied approaches to writing. You can expect prompts to help you move past writer’s block, activities that will challenge your typical approaches to generating new work, and fresh draft material to take home at the workshop’s conclusion. Bring your pens, paper, and charged laptops, and a willingness to try something new to jumpstart your writing.

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.
