Course Catalog

Living Nations, Living Words

Class Update: This class has been moved to 6/5. It will now take place only one day. This has been updated from the print catalog.

All Levels | This class will travel the pathways of Poet Laureate Joy Harjo’s project Living Nations, Living Words: A Map of First Peoples Poetry. Students can expect to read, discuss, and contextualize this interactive selection of contemporary Indigenous poetics.

There will be a 2 hour writing break from 12 – 2 pm PT.

All students in reading classes will receive a book club discount on the instructor’s reading list at the Elliott Bay Book Co.

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.
