In examining the language of contemporary poets, we learn new techniques to apply to our own work. Poetry III assumes a foundation of craft and elements of poetry; from here we’ll practice generative writing exercises to produce new poems. Students will participate in a supportive workshop in which their work is appreciated for what it is and creatively encouraged to grow. You’ll learn how to heighten the resonance in each poem you present, how to make conflicting elements work together to bring out the themes, and how to support yourself as you write and revise to make your best poems.
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.
