We are excited to launch applications for the Fall Press Corps Intensive! The Press Corps Intensive is a FREE five-week arts-going and criticism practice workshop. The Fall session runs October 10-November 18. In this program,10 teens will work with professional writers and critics who will help mentor and hone your arts criticism skills. The session includes five different art events at several TeenTix Arts Partners.
- Theater performances at Seattle Repertory Theatre and Seattle Public Theater
- A visual art exhibit at NAAM
- A film at Three Dollar Bill Cinema
- A concert at Fremont Abbey Arts
After each arts event, you’ll write a review and bring it to our Sunday meetings. At each meeting you’ll receive one-on-one feedback on your writing and be able to discuss the art you saw. All ticket costs are covered, and a travel stipend for bus fare to and from events is also available. At the end of the workshop a review by each a participant will be posted on the TeenTix blog.
The Fall Intensive will be taught by professional critics and writers. Instructors will provide individual editing feedback and mentorship so you can hone and strengthen your writing and reviewing skills. The exact lineup of teaching artists is still in the works, but stay tuned for more info!
