Coming up!

Collaborations begins on March 22, and will be taught (collaboratively!) by Sarah Tourjee and Ren Evans. The course will feature several guest artists from the Providence community. Meet our guests and collaborators!
Danielle Vogel is a prose poet, lyric essayist, and book artist. She is the author of Between Grammars (Noemi Press, 2014), Narrative & Nest(Abecedarian Gallery, 2012) and lit (Dancing Girl Press, 2008). She holds a PhD in Literature & Creative Writing from The University of Denver as well as a MFA in Writing & Poetics from Naropa University. Her written texts have most recently appeared in Two Serious Ladies, The Feminist Wire, La Vague, and Tarpaulin Sky. Her book arts work has most recently been exhibited at RISD Museum, AS220 Project Space, The University of Arizona Poetry Center, and Denver’s Abecedarian Gallery. Through both her written work and book artifacts, she investigates the symbiotic bonds between a writer, language, and her readers—how a book, as an extended architecture of a body, can be a site of radical transformation.

Vincent Brewer is a company dancer with Festival Ballet Providence. A native of Great Barrington, MA, Vincent trained with the Albany Berkshire Ballet and Berkshire Pulse in Western Massachusetts. He furthered his dance training at Indiana University on scholarships from the Jacob’s School of Music and the Hutton Honors College, graduating with a B.S. in Ballet.

He also performed works by Ashton, Tudor, Tharp, and Nijinska. He has danced with Eglevsky Ballet and Suzanne Farrell Ballet, performing Flower Festival at Genzano and Balanchine’s Tarantella with Eglevsky Ballet. 7a65a7c3c52ff6431aae2662f8abf8f9

Narrative Strategies: A six-week fiction workshop

Are you a fiction writer?

Wednesdays, March 4-April 8, 2015 from 7:00pm-9:30pm, Victor Wildman is hosting an excellent fiction workshop!

According to Wildman the class will, “explore a variety of ways of constructing works of fiction. We will find our inspiration not exclusively through exposure to other works of fiction (novels, short stories, etc.), but from “real life,” from poems, works of non-fiction, photography, film and music. Each week we will read or see or listen to something that will serve us as a model for the fictions we will make, which we will then discuss in class. A joyful open attitude combined with a commitment to show up each week and do the work is all that I expect and hope you’ll bring.” Click here to register!
