This course will engage the logic, procedures, and techniques of letterpress composition and printing as rhetorical, narrative, and poetic resources. Approaching letterpress as a materially based and physically structured writing process, we will arrive at book design as an extension of textual production. After a series of initiating exercises, students will devise a method and project to culminate in the composition of a book. Readings and discussions will situate our work in relation to a history of relevant literary experimentation. No prior experience with letterpress or book-making will be required. Note: this course has an optional lab following class meetings from 3:00 to 6:00 PM.

This is a seminar to generate new work in playwrighting for writers of all genres. We will explore a wide range of strategies and forms that make for suspenseful and compelling plays, starting with weekly writing of monologues and short scenes, and in-class writing and readings in contemporary playwrighting. Given that theatre is a three-dimensional, time-based medium, attention will be given to the images your settings evoke, as well as the cultural and emotional landscape of the play and the many ways that can be expressed onstage. We will focus considerable energy on writing characters with rich and contradictory subtexts and how this informs their relationship to language: to what they say and do not say. How to write concise, unexpected dialogue that rings true is an enviable skill to have in any genre, and the discipline of working in a genre that only allows for dialogue is a useful and adventurous way to deepen that skill. No previous playwrighting experience required.
Friday seminar is a required class for all incoming students and is open to all students. The course consists of a series of readings, performances and profesional development workshops. The seminar allows for intimate encounters with poets and writers of various styles and aesthetics.
Mentored Study provides one-on-one study each semester with a faculty mentor chosen by the student. Meetings are regular and frequent and are based on writing the student produces. The course gives students the freedom to pursue their own directions seriously and intensively, while faculty mentors engage and guide them through in-depth discussion and detailed critical commentary. In consultation with the mentor a student may also choose to incorporate relevant reading into the course. This reading provides the basis for reflective or critical writing by the student that becomes part of the overall dialogue. Groups of three or more students with shared interests may combine their Mentored Study units to arrange Special Tutorials.
