Write, Read, Speak and Get Published: Verbalists Intensive

This project was supported, in part, by a grant from 4Culture!

The Verbalists Intensive is a three-week workshop that teaches writing, public speaking, and the craft of using memories to serve as creative fodder. All students complete an original piece of writing and share it aloud with an audience. Past participants have described the Intensive as cathartic, uplifting, and great for their artistic development.

We are joining forces with the Seattle Star (www.seattlestar.net) to publish selected stories from the upcoming Verbalists Intensive cohort. The team at the Star is excited to share your story with the whole world!

I hope that you can take advantage and sign up for the Intensive today: www.shiftmassage.com/adventures. All classes are hosted by our friends at Shift Massage in South Lake Union.

Community based pricing starting at $10 for the entire 3 weeks.

The schedule of class meetings is:
Thurs 9/5 7:00 – 9:00 (1st class)
Mon 9/9 7:00 – 9:00 (2nd class)
Mon 9/16 – Wed 9/18 (Individual Rehearsals; one evening per writer)
Thurs 9/19 7:00 – 9:00 (Dress rehearsal)
Mon 9/23 7:00 – 9:00 (Performance at Neptune Coffee in Greenwood)

The location of classes is 1800 Westlake Avenue North, Suite 110, Seattle WA 98109.

    Please explain:
    "Choose your own tuition at $240, $180, $120, $85, $45 or $10"

    My attendance will be determined by the tuition cost per class, and I cannot attend all 6. What are my options?

    I'm happy / sad to announce that the class is completely registered! If you weren't able to register for the class through shiftmassage.com then unfortunately we are completely full. Thank you very much for your interest regardless! We'll be doing this again soon!

    I will try to message individuals through Meetup.com! But if you don't get this message in time you're welcome to sit in on the first lecture on September 5th, no trouble at all.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
