Unleashing the Details! A Free Virtual Prose Workshop @ Online

Newtown Literary Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting prose and poetry in Queens, is offering free creative writing classes ONLINE through the summer.

Our next virtual workshop will be led by Catherine Kapphahn on Saturday, July 11th from 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m:

“Unleashing the Details! A Virtual Prose Workshop”

How can you bring your story to life? How do you excavate details that will make your story fly, swoop, and hover? How can you weave in sensory details that will allow the reader to see what you see, feel what you feel? In this writing workshop, you will draw upon your own experiences, summon memory lists, examine pictures and excerpts, so you can give your story the life it deserves.

RSVP to receive instructions on how to join the virtual workshop here: https://bit.ly/NewtownJuly11.

Catherine Kapphahn’s Immigrant Daughter: Stories You Never Told Me received The Center for Fiction’s Christopher Doheny Award. It was also shortlisted for a Del Sol Press Prize. She has received artist grants from the Queens Council on the Arts. Her writing has appeared in Astoria Magazine, the Feminist Press Anthology This is the Way We Say Goodbye, CURE Magazine, and SalonZine. She earned an M.F.A. in writing from Columbia University and B.A. from Hunter College. Catherine is an adjunct lecturer at CUNY Lehman College in the Bronx.

This program is made possible with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Enter the Body: Choreography Class to Create Outside the Box @ Online, EST
Jul 13 @ 10:00 am – Jul 17 @ 12:00 pm
Enter the Body: Choreography Class to Create Outside the Box @ Online, EST | New York | United States

Enter the Body: Choreography Class to Create Outside the Box
Taught by Valerie Green via ZOOM
July 13-17, 10AM-12PM, EST

Cost: $150 for 5 classes. Single-class option for “Enter the Body” is NOT available.

Description: This workshop shares valuable creative movement exercises and tools that stimulate the mind and body to improvise and generate new ideas. When using the language of movement rather than words, a different kind of image or emotion may arise which bypasses the controlling and censoring mind. Words label what we know. Expressive movement reveals the unknown. We will use this opportunity to dive deeply into our physical and emotional body to explore and create in a nurturing environment. As we work in a virtual container from home we will also investigate our bodies in response to our physical environment. Class participants will be guided to break old habits, find new pathways and discover their own movement conceptions.

“Enter the Body” is part of Valerie Green/Dance Entropy’s Virtual Summer Intensive. Dance Entropy is also offering Hip-Hop/Street Styles classes from 1:00-2:30pm. Students may sign up for “Enter the Body” and/or Hip Hop as desired.

All Intensive classes are open-level and tailored to both beginner and more experienced dancers – inclusive for all!

“I appreciate the experience of having the opportunity to be vulnerable in a safe space.” -Summer Intensive Student
