creative writing summer class by Ryan Newton at CELLspace

From Ryan Newton:

This Summer I am teaching a six week Creative Writing Course at CELLspace, a non-profit artistic community enabler dedicated to aiding emerging/emergent artists in the bay area and beyond. Class begins July 1st and runs until August 5th each Friday from 7-9pm. It is called The Lyric Voice, and will include examples of verse craft from diverse poets such as: Bob Kaufman, Amiri Baraka, Federico Garcia Lorca, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Alice Notely, Maria Tsvetaeva, Arthur Rimbaud, Robert Duncan, Robert Creeley and many others (subject to change). The best news is the course is quite affordable, only forty dollars for six weeks instruction (I do believe there is a nominal registration fee). For a more thorough course description and other information, I have attached the very lovely CELLspace Summer Course booklet (full of many intriguing classes) as a PDF. My course is listed on page 18. If you cannot download the attachment, check out the CELLspace web site at, where links to the course catalog and booklet are on the home page, along with registration information. I hope you will forward this on to those friends of yours who might be looking to get back into writing, or those wishing to continue with current projects. Writers of all levels are encouraged to register. I intend to make it FUN.
