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.
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.
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, 10:00 a.m.-3:50 p.m., with a one-hour break for lunch. Note: The first day of class is Monday, July 8, and the last day is Thursday, July
Solutions Journalism Instructor: TBD
Journalism traditionally focuses on uncovering problems. Solutions journalism takes that process a step further and seeks to report about solutions to those problems. It investigates the ways people have looked for answers to problems — from homelessness,
unemployment, and criminal justice to climate change and beyond — and how those answers work. This workshop will teach the basics of solutions journalism: how to identify what makes for a good story and develop your ability to report and tell that
story in the best way possible. Meets Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m.-3:50 p.m., with a one-hour break for lunch. Note: The first day of class is Monday, July 8, and the last day is Thursday, July 25.
