Hello Labbers and Friends of The Lab,
I hope summer doled out delicious days for you. Can you believe it's almost Fall? Already? I've decided to forego other work opportunities in order to be with those I love most: you.
A new session of The Lab, with six brand new experiments, starts 9/10.
Here are some more details and links to places with even more details:
The Lab :: Writing Classes with Matthew Clark Davison :: Fall 2013 Session
When: 6 consecutive Tuesdays, starting September 10th, 2013.
What time: 7-9:30pm.
Where: A cozy salon in Pacific Heights on Bush and Fillmore.
Matthew is a writer, teacher, and writing coach. He teaches or has taught at at Stanford University, San Francisco State University, and Performing Arts Workshop. His writing has been published in numerous places, including Mississippi Review and The Atlantic Monthly.
He says about The Lab:
"I wanted to create a learning environment that was at once experimental and technically useful. Where people are welcome and encouraged to bring all of their personal experiences, desires, fears, wants, needs, and passions to the group and to their pages."
So he started "The Lab" as "a place to experiment with prose" for "people who love words."
This turns out to be a broad and lively community.
At The Lab we take our commitment to writing, not ourselves, seriously. People who are also gardeners and lawyers and bookkeepers and web designers and writers come together to write. We open our minds to every single thing (visual art, architecture, music theory, and brain science have been a few of the topics offered to ponder in previous sessions of The Lab) that can deepen our writing and our way of seeing the world.
While The Lab focuses on Fiction and Memoir, it has also been populated by plenty of people experimenting in poetry, playwrighting, and with genre-defying prose.
Class Size: 10-15 people.
