Course Catalog

Poetry I

Designed for any poet ready to take their poetry understanding to a new level, Poetry I will introduce or reintroduce you to poems from many different eras—we’ll read Walt Whitman, Robert Hayden, Natasha Trethewey, and Joy Harjo, among many others—while providing a rich foundation for writing new poems. We’ll explore and practice many essential elements of poetry, including image, metaphor, sound, line breaks, and overall form.

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.
