Poems for a Cause

All Levels | Why give a speech at the protest rally when you could speak a poem, witness through lyric lines, testify with an urgent blessing, or teach an anthem all can sing together? Or maybe the poems you write out of love for your cause are quietly handed to friends and strangers, slipped into pockets to change hearts and lift spirits. We will savor stirring texts, then write our own — for earth, for justice, for kindness and compassion. This class includes a one-hour lunch break.

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.
