All Levels. Poets have addressed issues of disease and traumatic injury for ages. Using poetry by Lucia Perillo, Tom Andrews, and others, we will study and value ways in which disability has been and can be translated into fine poetry. Participants need not be disabled, though disabled students are encouraged to attend. Prompts will be offered based on the work studied. Sharing personal details and/or writing will not be required.
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.
