  1. Who should take this class?

Any writer or translator interested in stretching their brain and their practice in new and fascinating ways!

  1. Do students need to speak a second language?

No, they don’t need to have a second language. Having one is, of course, advantageous, but it’s not strictly necessary. There are all kinds of interesting translation experiments that can be done without fluency in a second language.

  1. What if I’ve never done this before?

No problem! Find a text you’d like to work on and let’s give it a shot together!

-no experience or second language necessary- just a fascination with words.

“Nothing has moved my personal writing further than considering the kinds of decisions made by translators. Do I stay true to the style, the tone, the rhythm, the content, the humor, irony or plot? How can I capture all of these things–all of these parts of myself–and pour them into a single line?”

Word Makes World: Writing for Theater and Performance

Instructor Casey Llewellyn

This is a six-week introductory class for anyone interested in writing plays or text for performance.

Each play is a blueprint for an event and posits a world. The playwright writes language to be swallowed, absorbed by bodies and released back into space on breath, the new world enacted. In this class, we will explore the potential of text as nutrition for the transformative theatrical encounter. We will read plays by writers who have pushed the form, do in class exercises and weekly assignments, and read and respond to each other’s work with the goal of engaging in a wide variety of techniques one can to use to approach playwriting from any direction.

Dates: Mondays, 6:30-9pm from July 8-August 12
Location: Ada Books, 717 Westminster St. Providence

What Presses Most

Instructor Kate Schapira

Instructor Kate Schapira

This is a class for students who are ready to be braver in their writing practice and presentation. Writers will challenge themselves on two fronts: by writing in ways or under circumstances that are strange but important to them, and by exploring ways to arrange meetings between their work and the world. Plan for in-class writing, mini field trips, and the design and making of three chapbooks in six weeks. Writers in any genre are welcome; we will be reading and writing mainly short-form pieces.

Instructor: Kate Schapira
Dates: Tuesdays, 6:30-9pm from July 9-August 13
