Summer Classes

Sign of Four

The early Sherlock Holmes short stories are widely read, but less well known than the four novels featuring the world's most admired consulting detective. In this class, which is part of an on-going series, we will tackle Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Sign of Four, which introduces us to Holmes’ drug habits, Dr. Watson's future wife, and a shifting dynamic between the two men. We will also explore some of the unintended consequences of Britain's trade and colonial involvements.

Graphic Memoirs

The medium of graphic novels is a great way to combine words and pictures to tell a story, and can bring a personal memoir to life. The class will delve into the ways the graphic novel can be an advantageous medium for writers exploring difficult themes. Taught by Reuben Award-nominated cartoonist T.R. Logan, this class will also cover graphic novel basics, as well as how to put your own stories down in a way which will capture your readers’ imaginations.
