#1 Graphic Design Shop  ×

As designers, we’re constantly among and within the written word. Many of us have practices which integrate writing beyond that which is FPO. Whether you have a specific topic relating to your graphic design practice, a perspective on an aspect of our world, or a general urge to fall into — or back into — a creative relationship with writing, this workshop is designed to offer the support and accountability to help our community start writing, keep writing, edit and publish short essays and other nonfiction. While most workshop sessions will be devoted to full and divided group peer-editing, we will begin classes with prompted free-writing designed to let ourselves ease into the creative shaping of words and phrases, and to acquaint or reacquaint ourselves with a writing flow. To culminate our session, we will prepare a publication to print and adapt our work for a public group reading.

– Instructed by Elie Andersen of XXXI and Crit
– 4 weeks
– Tuesday nights
– October 15 – November 5

① What if I sign up and want to cancel? You’re welcome to find a replacement for your spot, but we don’t offer refunds.

② What if I miss a class? Since we’re covering a lot of material in only 6 weeks, we recommend trying to make it to every class. Stuff happens, of course, so we’ll connect everyone in class so you can get caught up from your fellow students.

③ What if I go to the class and don’t like it? We’d love to hear your feedback on what we can do better. Unfortunately we can’t offer any refunds.

④ What if there aren’t enough people? We need a minimum number of people to hold class. We’ll send you an email a week before the first class to confirm. If we don’t hit that number, we’ll refund your money.
