Writing a World of Wonders

All Levels | Aimee Nezhukumatathil describes wonder as surprise—when one’s curiosity is, “confronted with something unfamiliar or unexpected and that sense of curiosity turns into joy and excitement.” We will immerse ourselves in her book World of Wonders: In Praise of Fireflies, Whale Sharks, and Other Astonishments, then generate our own wonder-fueled writing from in-class prompts and exercises. Poets and prose writers welcome. Students will leave with a collection of inspired new work and the option for an instructor conference.

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.
