Writer's Studio (Ages 15-18)

Students will work to improve their writing skills while pushing their creative limits in this dynamic writing course. Designed for those who want to investigate writing through experimentation with style, format, and media, students explore the possibilities of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and hybrid practices as they investigate the many intersections between visual art and language, such as comics, artistsí books, film, and performance. Through traditional and unconventional forms of writing, students develop their own voice and vision, express ideas in new ways, and give their writing a new creative edge. With faculty guidance and peer support, students share their literary efforts in class and are assigned reading and writing exercises to clarify, expand, and challenge written expressions. *NOTE* Some previous writing experience is beneficial. Students are required to bring their own laptop or tablet with word processing software, such as Word, Pages, TextEdit, etc.

"I thought it was one of the best courses I’ve taken part in. Everyone was so engaging, the teachers were so helpful and encouraging, it was an overall open-minded and creative space for me. I partook in discussions, was able to take a look at others' talents, and made new friends. The amount my writing grew through this course was phenomenal. I would recommend others to take this course one hundred percent."
