We are excited to launch applications for the very first "Beyond the Review" Press Corps Intensive. The Beyond the Review Intensive is a deep-dive workshop into the craft of arts journalism. In this week-long immersive course, ten teens will work with professional arts journalists to learn how to interview artists, and write previews and features of art events. Teens will receive one-on-one mentorship on their writing, and, at the end of the program, their work will be published on the TeenTix blog!
The best part of it all? This program is FREE!
Applications for the Beyond the Review Press Corps Intensive are now open! This Intensive runs April 8 - 12 from 10 AM - 3 PM each day.
Over the 5-day period students will spend the mornings learning about arts journalism from professional writers. In the afternoons they’ll visit TeenTix Arts Partners to get an inside look and hone their interviewing, and previewing skills. They’ll get to interview local artists and learn more about local arts organizations. Teens will also have time to work on their writing and receive feedback and individual mentorship by professional arts journalists.
Fill out the application form. Please allow adequate time to complete your application and answer each question as thoroughly as possible.
The Press Corps is interested in working with teens whose writing communicates their personality, and reflects time, effort, and thoughtfulness.
