This spring and summer, Victor Wildman is teaching a number of exiting new classes. Some of these are through Frequency, and some are his own projects. Either way, they’re all sure to be excellent. Take a look at what he has coming up. And don’t forget to check out the rest of Frequency’s exciting summer courses.
Frequency classes with Victor
Beginning in May and June, Victor Wildman will teach two Frequency classes focused solely on reading different books and authors through the lens of a writer. Beginning May, Victor will teach Reading Carpenter’s Gothic by William Gaddis. Then in June, Reading Susan Howe will begin. Register today for one, or both, of these courses. You’ll have the opportunity to delve deeply into some great works of writing, and do so with the support of a group.
Other classes with Victor
But wait, there’s more. Victor is also teaching some additional classes at the Community Church of Providence. Here are the course descriptions.
The next iteration of READING FOR WRITING begins on Monday April 25th at the Community Church of Providence. It will run for six weeks and conclude on May 30th. We will be reading William Gaddis’s JR – his great tragic-comedic book, and formally, it is the purest expression of his style. To read it is to enter another world (there are no chapters, there are no breaks, and to the first time reader, it appears, there is no narrator) and then look up from the page and realize that it is in fact our own. We will read this 726 page book told almost exclusively through unattributed dialogue and everyone will keep a reading journal that one person will be asked to share a passage from each week. There is so much about writing to be learned from this book – and the way he makes the time (it feels like real time) pass as we read . . .
