- The Center for Book Arts invites applications for our Letterpress Publishing Seminar for Emerging Writers. The next session of this workshop is scheduled for the Spring 2017, June 7-11 (Wednesday - Sunday). The seminar is tuition free for participants and includes the cost of materials. Those selected must attend the entire five-day workshop.
Participants will hear lectures from various professionals in the field – printers, fine press publishers, book artists, and dealers, to get a practical overview of letterpress printing and small press publishing. They will learn the basics of letterpress printing, both traditional typesetting and options with new technology, by collaboratively printing a small edition of broadsides. This workshop is most suitable for those with little to no previous letterpress experience. Each seminar will be offered to a maximum of eight students. Writers from culturally diverse backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.
Applications will not be accepted from students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs during the program year (September 2016-May 2017.)NOTE: Applicants must be 18 years or older
