Psychology for Writers

All Levels | If you’re yearning to expand beyond competent verse, formulaic essays, and mediocre storytelling, this course will give you an array of new tools to hone and cultivate psychological depth in your writing practice. In seminar discussions, brief lectures, and in-class writing, we’ll explore the core concepts of psychoanalysis (including projection, transference, and repetition compulsion) to catalyze your poems, essays, and fictional characters through the deep work of inquiry and reflection.

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.
