A Second section of The Title as Frame and Invitation will take place on March 7, 2020, and is open for registration now.
All Levels | Where do great poem titles come from? What makes a title “great,” anyway? Through reading and discussing example poems by Angel Nafis, Alice Oswald, Lucille Clifton, Thomas Lux and others, we’ll explore this essential and too-often overlooked craft element. Bring three of your own poems-in-progress, and we’ll practice titling them to entice the reader with a compelling frame and invitation.
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.
