The Poem Inside the Day

The use of days as literary units is a practice that can be traced to Basho’s Narrow Road to the Interior. From daybook to travelogue, short lyric to prose meditation, ecopoetics to elegy, here is a structural frame both open—to all that the day might contain—and strict: no swerve beyond the day into any other time or place. Reading W. G. Sebald, Kimiko Hahn, and others, this writing exercise–based class is for any writer ready to tap into the day’s abundance.

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.
