Course Catalog

Writing Alongside Local Poets

In this class, we’ll draw inspiration from the notion that poetry begins at home by writing alongside, and visiting with, four local poets: Quenton Baker, Priscilla Long, Melanie Noel, and Anastacia-Renee. These “close-to-home” encounters will help us begin to understand the range of perspectives that create the intellectual and aesthetic world of Seattle in the present moment. We’ll consider different takes on being productive practicing poets—not just on the page but out in the world, as well.

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.
