Writing About The Northwest

All Levels | Writers from the Northwest usually have an affinity for the dark and the lush. This generative course will be filled with readings from Northwest writers who convey conflict and respect for the area, including legends like Raymond Carver, Kurt Cobain, and Denise Levertov, as well as contemporaries like Ruth Ozeki, Jess Walter, and Terese Marie Mailhot. We’ll use these readings as inspiration for our writing, then peer review our creations in class.

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.
