    There’s never been a better or more important time for nonfiction. Humanity depends on a fact-based understanding of the world. But your work doesn’t have to read like an encyclopedia entry. In fact, it can read as powerfully as fiction.

    But how do you take a heap of facts and tell a satisfying story? One key step is seeing the main theme of your subject, whether it is a life, a historical event, or a form of technology. 

    This is both the hard part and the thrilling part—and it’s what will set your book apart from every other one on the subject. 

    In this workshop, you’ll learn how to build a system for organizing and focusing the big picture in your research. You’ll learn how to build parallel timelines so that you master not only your subject, but the context. You’ll also see spots where you need to dive deeper, as well as unexpected connections.

      Like it or not, marketing is part of a modern author’s job description, and it starts long before the book comes out. This is a class for the writers who are baffled when an agent or publisher asks them to describe their “platform,” and for writers who are considering self-publishing but don’t know how to find early adopters. With lots of time for discussion and guided assignments between classes to help students create personalized marketing plans, we'll explore a variety of practical, inexpensive, and realistic ways for “pre-published” authors to gather a community of readers and influencers. 

      Attendees will...

      • Be able to describe their unique audience, their own strengths, and where those two overlap.
      • Understand the importance of building a permanent, reputation-building platform, and why it needs to start as soon as possible
      • Consider six popular starting points for new authors, including both online and offline strategies that work for different authors and audiences

      Nothing is as important to a professional artist's or designer's career as a carefully created portfolio. Yet very few people have one that they're proud to show. Something always seems to get in the way of sitting down and figuring out just how you want to define your work, what you want to focus on, and whom you want to attract with a curated group of pieces you've made. Whether you're blowing the dust off your old portfolio, or creating a new one from scratch, this class takes you through the process of creating a strong portfolio step-by-step, identifying concrete objectives, finding holes that need to be filled, and providing encouragement and review along the way.

      High schoolers applying to college, people applying to grad school, recent grads about to start the job search, people applying for a job in a design field or in academia, or artists who want to get their work into viewable order either physically or online--all need up-to-date portfolios-- and all are welcome.

        Ever craved the catharsis of processing something by way of the page? Ever wanted to turn a painful experience into prose? If so, join Steph Jagger, author of Everything Left to Remember, for this two-session workshop.

        Together we will:

        • Explore and untangle the suite of emotions that is grief,
        • Write and share,
        • Listen and learn, and
        • Excavate and alleviate.

        And...you'll walk away with:

        • Two to three pieces of first-draft writing in response to Steph's prompts,
        • In the moment feedback and edits on any shared work,
        • A carefully curated list of suggested reading and resources,
        • A custom-designed list of writing prompts and practices, and
        • A better sense of yourself within the landscape of grief.

        Words can soothe. Words can create space inside and out. When wrapped this way and that, they can take us apart and put us back together. Words can move us from loss right back into life. Join us.

        To note:
        No particular type of grief experience is required. All of us have experienced a loss of some kind: a person, a job, some version of ourselves, our two front teeth. If you want to look at loss -- sit with it, process it, shift it or shape it -- you’re in the right place. No writing experience is necessary. All of us have written something: a sonnet, a novel, a grocery list. While Steph is a writer with extensive experience in publishing, editing, and craft, in this workshop we’re looking for catharsis over quality, process over profundity. If you know how to use a pen or a keyboard, you’re in the right place.

        "The way we deal with loss shapes our capacity to be present to life more than anything else. The way we protect ourselves from loss may be the way we distance ourselves from life." - Rachel Naomi Remen

        Learn how to create picture books through close reading and analysis of picture books published in the last 10 years. Over five weeks, we will select, read, and learn how to analyze contemporary picture books to begin to understand how the masters create the wonderful books that are being published now. We will look at structure, form, voice, theme, word choice, relationship of words to illustrations, wordless books, and other tools and devices that bring stories to life in the picture book genre. Students will be asked to share their findings with the class so that everyone will benefit from your analyses. Students will be encouraged to work on and share their own picture book projects for support and feedback throughout the course. In addition to gaining writing skills, all students will come away with a deeper understanding of how illustrations work in picture books. No previous writing experience required, illustrators welcome.

          Your life is a story, and if told correctly, a very interesting one. There is an art to taking the sprawling events of your life and reducing them down to a personal essay or memoir. Using Bill Kenower’s unique inside-out approach to writing, we will look at how to tell the fine difference between telling a story about your life, and using your life to tell a story. It doesn’t matter if you want to tell the story of how you’ve climbed Mount Everest, or falling in love for the first time, all stories are worth telling when you find their heart. 

          Students taking this class can expect to learn:

          • How to find the narrative arc in a personal story.
          • How to write about painful memories.
          • How to write about people who have mistreated you.
          • How to turn the most challenging moments from your life into a story that can help others.
