Revision by Poetry’s Periodic Table of the Elements

Intermediate | Title, first line, line break, voiced cadence, word-field, the turn . . . the opportunity for special effects is present in the decisions a writer makes with each element. All are at work no matter how long or short the poem may be, or what kind of poem it is—haiku to lyric to epic. Bring your three most promising poems- in-process, and we will work through ways to make them more like what they want to be. This will not be a critique session, but a workshop in generative revision.

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.
