Learn to facilitate poetry that changes lives!

REGISTER TODAY FOR SEATTLE TRAINING, OCT. 8TH

We think you’ll enjoy this day with Pongo, learning our trauma-informed techniques for helping youth and adults to write poetry about their difficult experiences. In 1,205 surveys, 100% of our authors report enjoying their writing experience, 75% report using poetry to express themselves on topics they don’t normally discuss, and 82% report feeling better after writing. Over one-third of our writers have written only a little or not at all before Pongo. Poetry is a way of engaging people, in an open and powerful way, about painful events that affect them deeply. The training is appropriate for counselors, teachers, artists, and anyone who wants to see change in the world and for themselves. People from out of state are welcome to attend using a scholarship.

English Department Reunion

English Department Reunion

Saturday, October 8th

9-11 am

Emerson Hall Lobby

What’s being billed as SPU’s Grand Reunion–a celebration of Seattle Pacific’s 125th anniversary–kicks off this Friday and continues into the weekend. Alums of the English major are especially invited to attend a reception hosted by your former professors, who want to see you again.  Come reconnect over coffee with profs and fellow majors.  Hear about what’s new, as in new faculty members and a new lit major.

A tad early on a Saturday morning for some of you, assuming you’ve kept your college habits.  Rouse yourself nonetheless!  This may be the only time you’ll be able to revisit your professors for another 125 years.  And some may have retired by then.

Where am I?
