All poems have a structure, even free-verse poems that seem to range around with no apparent form. Bring three new poems you’re struggling to complete – drafts that just won’t seem to fall into place – and we’ll bring out our new tools and get to work.
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.

She’s the recipient of two Best American Poetry Prizes, two NEA fellowships, and a Guggenheim fellowship.
