Course Catalog

Yearlong in Poetry (IN-PERSON)

All Levels | This yearlong poetry class will combine weekly readings of poetry and craft essays to develop the vocabulary to read and respond to each other’s work. The class will mix workshop (in large and small groups), in-class exercises, weekly take-home prompts, and a discussion of contemporary poems and craft concerns. Our ultimate goal will be to set students up for future poetic endeavors, including developing a short collection of poems, discussing submitting work for publication, and creating a long-term writing practice.

Payment plans available. Contact registrar@hugohouse.org for more information.

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.
