Workshops

Workshops are offered in three seasons (winter–spring, summer and fall) at three different levels: 1) Foundational Forms 2) Contemporary Practice; 3) Manuscript Review. Workshops typically run for 5–7 weeks, with one three-hour session per week on weeknights or weekend afternoons/early evenings. Some workshops consist of one or two sessions or run asynchronously. Each workshop season culminates in a Workshop Showcase, which all students are invited to participate in. Admission to Levels I and II is by open enrollment; Level-III workshops and manuscript consultations require a writing sample.

All in-person workshops at 144 Montague St will require participants to show proof of vaccination/booster.

This season, there are no courses corresponding to your selection.
