What We Really Mean to Say: Utilizing Poetic Techniques in Prose

All Levels | When we attend to language, we not only say what it is we’re after in more vivid ways, but we very often find ways to say that which we didn’t even know we could say — that is, we discover what it is we really mean to say. In this craft workshop, we will read selections from prose writers utilizing poetic techniques, identify four ways to attend to language, and practice using these techniques in our own writing.

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.
