Course Catalog

On/Of/For the Earth

All Levels | In this generative workshop, we will focus on ways our writing can be a potent call to protect the planet—whether we’re penning a letter to an elected official, drafting a personal essay, or writing a poem. Prompts and readings will guide participants into writing that serves as witness to the landscapes we love and will help us approach our work creatively and playfully, even when we are confronting the most challenging issues of our day.

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.
