CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS (Applications now closed)

Kearny Street Workshop, in collaboration with Asian Art Museum, presents Interdisciplinary Writers Lab (IWL), a 3-month, multi-genre master class for local writers of color scheduled for summer 2018. IWL is a unique program that challenges emerging writers to thoroughly explore and develop their writing skills and styles across multiple genres.

The goals of the IWL program include: providing local emerging writers/artists with the opportunity to challenge, develop, and expand their practice by working with established writers in a variety of genres; to contribute to the development of new literary forms and language that incorporate multiple forms of creative expression; to provide emerging artists with the opportunity to build community and connect with writers in the literary world; and to publish in a print anthology that highlights work by exciting new writers committed to exploring new forms and voices.

Tuition for IWL is $350. The application fee is $10. In order to reserve your spot with IWL, full tuition must be paid upon acceptance into the program. Failure to pay tuition before the established deadline prior to the start of IWL could result in removal from the program. 

*Although IWL accepts applications from all interested students, the focus of this program is geared towards artists and writers of color. It’s our hope that the students’ engagement in this program will prompt the further development of their craft.

IWL 2019 is a collaboration between Kearny Street Workshop and Asian Art Museum, San Francisco.

Class Schedule

IWL will take place on Saturday mornings (12:00pm - 2:30pm), June 1st through August 24th. Classes will take place at Asian Art Museum (200 Larkin St. SF, CA). Each month-long, genre-specific writing workshop will be taught by a different instructor. A closing reading that is open to the public will be announced this summer.
