Master Class: Book Arts and Generative Writing

Thursday, August 1
9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Please join us for this Master Class with Catie Hannigan and Adam Monkaba.

Explore the intersection of form and content with poet and visual artist Catie Hannigan, and designer and book artist Adam Monkaba, two instructors of the Certificate Program at the Independent Publisher Resource Center. The Certificate Program is a yearlong creative-writing program where students learn the skills necessary to create a small print run of a chapbook of fiction, creative nonfiction, comics or poetry.

In this Master Class, you’ll gain the tools for generating new creative writing and sharing your writing in the form of hand-bound books. Over the course of the 5-hour session, you will generate two original pieces of writing and learn two book arts techniques.

Master classes are small, focused workshops, limited to 15 writers and presented by industry professionals. This Master Class is five hours long and includes lunch. You must register to attend Master Classes at an additional cost. Please register here.
