This class is going to explore the many intersections between writing and art (musical, performance, lyrical, ext). Working in collaboration with one another we’ll challenge our writing, and give it fresh modes of expression.
Sign up for Sarah Tourjee and Ren Evans‘s Collaborations course!
This is a course for writers of all genres and levels of experience who are interested in collaborating with other artistic mediums. Visiting local artists will lead collaborations with writers in the course in different artistic fields. In-class and out-of-class exercises will guide writers in an interdisciplinary conversation with each other, with existing works, and with new ways of generating work outside of their primary form. The class will conclude in celebration with a public performance of created work.

Are you a fiction writer?
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!

Only two spots left!
Winter is the time to write inward rather than outward, to draw on what we’ve already gathered, to keep warm and close to home and dream. In this one-day workshop, we’ll work on writing that divines what sustains us through dark times; through poetry and prose exercises, both intuitive and formal, and some visualizations and tactile exercises, we’ll identify our resources and storehouses, our shelters and our warm cores. For shivering writers in any genre; poets should be prepared to try a little prose, and vice versa.
Take a Frequency Course!
Expand your art. Meet and work with talented local writers. Discover new avenues of craft and style.
Writing has a rap for being an exercise in the art of isolation, but historically, many influential writers belonged to tight communities of trusted friends who offered feedback, encouragement, and camaraderie. After all, writing communicates; it exists in conversation with its past and present context.
Instead of being apart from, be a part of. Frequency exists for you. What would you like it to do?
Looking for a way to connect locally with a supportive and encouraging group of diverse writers? Sign up for a Frequency class, or visit one of our free events.
We’re in this together, and writing is worth fighting for.
