• Registration

    Students should register online with payment by credit card. Incoming Lang students should check with their advisor before registering. Incoming students in other New School undergraduate schools and colleges should consult with their own programs.

    Students register for only one course. New School summer intensives are rigorous, and students must expect to do substantial work daily in preparation for class. Taking other college courses and/or working a full-time job while you are enrolled in a summer intensive course is not recommended. You may be able to hold a part-time job, depending on your ability to manage your time and responsibilities.

    Course Descriptions

    All courses will meet for four hours daily four days a week, Monday through Thursday. In some courses, field trips may be scheduled outside of regular hours. Each course taps the resources of New York City in its own way, but students will have opportunities to take advantage of these resources with their peers and on their own.

    Fiction Workshop

    Writing in the City
    Instructor: Daphne Benedis-Grab

    In this intensive course, students write a weekly work of fiction — cumulative or separate pieces — which we will then workshop together as a class. Each week, we also discuss and dissect one element of creating a story (such as point of view, the role of dialogue, and plot) using books on craft and works of fiction to deepen our understand and fluency with each. We have weekly excursions around the city, meant to elicit new story ideas and inspire our writing projects. This course is meant to be generative; each student completes a number of works of prose. Meets Monday through Thursday, 1:00-5:00 p.m. Note: The first day of class is Monday, July 9, and the last day is Thursday, August 2.
