Lyrical Texture: Generative Strategies for Poets

All Levels | The focus of this class is lyrical texture. This may include developing sonic patterns, tactile landscapes, and compelling juxtapositions. Students will generate new poems and incorporate strategies to revise existing work. Methods include generative experiments and prompts, close readings of poems to identify different textures, and discussions around drawing inspiration from other media.

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.
