- Events & Programs
We will read and discuss poems by modern and contemporary writers, critique each other’s poems in process, and use prompts to encourage new writing. We will write a new poem each week in response to exercises and poems that inspire us, revise works in progress, and learn together in an atmosphere of mutual support and camaraderie. The instructor will hold an individual conference with each student.
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.

Carolyne Wright's new book is Masquerade: a Memoir in Poetry (Lost Horse Press, 2021). Her previous book from Lost Horse is This Dream the World: New & Selected Poems (Lost Horse Press, 2017), whose title poem received a Pushcart Prize and appeared in The Best American Poetry 2009. She has nine earlier books and chapbooks of poetry; a ground-breaking anthology, Raising Lilly Ledbetter: Women Poets Occupy the Workspace (Lost Horse, 2015), which received ten Pushcart Prize nominations; five award-winning volumes of poetry in translation from Spanish and Bengali; and a book of essays. Carolyne has served as Visiting Poet and professor of Creative Writing at colleges and universities throughout the U.S., including Harvard, Radcliffe, Emory University and the University of Miami. She returned in 2005 to her native Seattle, where she teaches for Hugo House, the Whidbey Writers Workshop MFA Program (from 2005 until the program’s closure in 2016), and for national and international literary conferences and festivals. A Contributing Editor for the Pushcart Prizes, Carolyne lived in Chile and traveled in Brazil on a Fulbright Grant; and she returned to Brazil in 2018 on an Instituto Sacatar artists residency in Bahia. She has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, 4Culture, and the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture; and a Fulbright U. S. Scholar Award granted in 2020 will take her back to Salvador, Bahia, after the CoVid-19 pandemic subsides in Brazil.
