Course Catalog

Poetry Generation Intensive

All Levels | When generating new poems, we can find ourselves going back to the same well again and again, never considering new watersheds. In this class, students will explore techniques for generating new poems, drawing on one’s own and others’ poems. We’ll look at methods for initiating, guiding, and expanding drafts and workshop poems with an eye to opening them up to further invention. Students will emerge with 10 to 15 drafts and a tools for generating new material.

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.
