What makes it different from journalism? Is memoir covered under creative non-fiction? Each student will have a chance to read examples of creative non-fiction and to write a paper on the topic of their choosing by the end of the course. Writing the paper includes practice interviewing subjects. This course is open to all levels. Allie Coker – Saturdays, Jun. 22nd-Jul. 13th, 10am-12pm. $112 (four meetings)

NEW! Organize Your Artistic Path This course is designed for professional or would-be professional artists who want to learn more about the business of art. Each of the five course meetings has a different focus, including how to build confidence as an artist, how to determine where to show your work, how to prepare for exhibitions, how to cope with rejection of applications and proposals, and how to work cooperatively with other artists. Ely Urbanski – Tuesdays, Jul. 9th-Aug. 6th, 6pm-8pm. $112 (five meetings)

NEW! Chant Down Babylon: Poetry as Incantation and Insurrection This poetry course offers a space for participants of all levels to generate poems and to engage each other’s work with an ethos of generosity and curiosity. In this workshop, we’ll pay deep attention to questions such as: How can poetry’s incantatory potential unsettle oppressive formations of power? How can poetry as a mode of spellbinding help us manifest liberatory ways of being? Students will read and respond to each other’s work. There will be space for the instructor to offer individualized feedback to participants. Destiny Hemphill – Saturdays, Jul. 20th–Aug. 10th, 10am-12pm. $112 (four meetings)
