Course Catalog

The Poetry of Necessity

In this class, we will examine forms, from odes to elegies, as a way of finding our own poetry’s necessary utterance. We will also start a new poem (or two). Students may want to look at or bring my anthology The Art Of Losing: Poems of Grief & Healing for examples of elegy and lasting tribute.

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.
