THE PROGRAM AND ITS STUDIO WORKSHOPS
THE STUDIO WORKSHOPS evolve through the dynamic principles of play,
invention, response, revision, serious sweat, more revision, and publication. Guided by
a staff of published, professional writers, you learn strategies to invent, develop, and
revise material using the writer's most essential tools--language, imagination, sight, and
insight. You conference with instructors and peer writers to fine tune your work for
publication. You learn to read as a writer,sharpening your sensibilities to form and craft.
By examining the work of contemporary artists,you become a more discerning reader
of your own and others' writing. You develop a portfolio and publish in theWorkshop
literary magazine. And you perform at the coffeehouse Writer's Cafe, a celebrated
Workshop tradition. Choose your intensive workshop from among five genres:
SongWriting Write songs in a setting where words come naturally,improvisation produces originality,
and music gives rise to unequivocal statement. Concentrate on lyrics, music, or both. Enter the kinship
of poetry and song through jazz/poetry jams. Perform live; go solo or collaborate with other singer-
songwriters. Either way, you're in that unparalleled space where sound and words explode into your
next song.
