Foundations of Fiction Writing with Stephanie Feldman (Mondays)

Foundations of Cultural Essay Writing with Tre Johnson (Tuesdays) 
Students will read cultural essays from a variety of backgrounds, topics, and lifestyles to explore how to further (or begin!) your skill in cultural critiques, observations, and storytelling. Follow Johnson on social media @tre_john_son. (Registration is closed)

Foundations of Poetry Writing with Noor Ibn Najam (Wednesdays) 
Writing poetry changes a poet, every time, in ways that can be inexplicable and resistant to explanation. In this discussion-based, generative workshop, we will collaborate to grow our understanding of the craft of poetry. Follow Najam on Instagram at @spike_sappho. (Registration is closed)
