30 Week Studio Classes: 2017/17
Now Taking Applications for the 2017/18 academic year.
The Studio specializes in long term literary studies. We meet each week for three hours and also read a selection of books, essays, and short stories, attend literary lectures, listen to podcasts by nationally known writers, and study together. We workshop our writing and analyze the tools of literary art including scene, structure, character development, arc, antagonistic forces and progressions. We have a mini poetry track, with Jenn Foreman, and this allows writers to break into deeper emotions within our prose. We also have a guest literary agent talk to us during the year. Last, there are two community readings for Studio writers, where you present your work to the whole school!
The Studio is a committed group who support each other by setting goals, sharing the details of their full length projects, and by being there during the ups and downs of the creative process.
Studio I - First years and beginning/intermediate
*Audio class option available. See below.
Studio II - Second year and intermediate writers
Studio III - Third and fourth year and advanced writers
