The textures of a strong poet’s voice can seem both perfectly identifiable and mysteriously indescribable. Parsing a poet’s voice can be a vexing exercise, involving a complex amalgam of subject matter, style and craft, features of biography and identity, plus any number of other elements. Using some remarkable models—from Frank Bidart to Lois Ann Yamanaka, Brigit Pegeen Kelly to Arthur Sze—we’ll examine the constitution of a poet’s voice. The instructor will assign a weekly writing prompt, and part of each class meeting will be devoted to lightly workshopping the poems written by participants.
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.
