***
Fiction, Memoir, and Beyond
The Douglass Street Lab
Is a Creative Writing Laboratory


When: 8 consecutive Tuesdays, starting January 18th, 2011. 
What time: 7-9:30pm.
Where: A spacious private home near both the Castro and Noe Valley with easy parking and access to MUNI. 
** NOTE: THIS COULD BE THE LAST CYCLE AT THIS LOCATION!!! 

Cost: $395.00

Intimate writing laboratory (a place to research, experiment, measure, review, and revise) for all levels. 
  • Experienced writers should expect to build upon their craft skills and deepen their characterizations. 
  • "Beginners" should expect to learn a useful, creative writing vocabulary and to experience how precision, concreteness, expansiveness, and generosity work together to form compelling and scintillating prose.
  • All should expect to take their work, but not themselves, seriously (plan to have fun WHILE digging deep in an environment that will be at once focused and relaxed).
 
Non-writer-identified folks, avid readers, and creative artists (actors, dancers, musicians, etc.) are welcomed, encouraged to attend. 
 
Class Size: 8-13 people. 
 
Notes:
  • You will NOT be responsible to write written feedback for your peers. Reading/feedback will take place in "The Lab" and there will be the option of posting and responding online in between sessions.  
  • The Douglass Lab is also home to a cat, should that be relevant to you.
