[BKARTS] Letterpress Printing and Fine Press Publishing Seminar for Emerging Writers



The Center for Book Arts invites applications for our Letterpress
Printing & Fine Press Publishing Seminar for Emerging Writers. The
next section of this seminar is scheduled for Friday through Sunday,
March 30-31 & April 1. The seminar is tuition free for participants
and includes the cost of materials. Those selected must attend the
entire three-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 fine 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 or other
projects.
 
Each seminar will be offered to a maximum of eight students. Writers
from culturally diverse backgrounds are especially encouraged to
apply. Finalists may be interviewed or asked to provide supplemental
information to their applications. 
 
Applications will not be accepted from students enrolled in
undergraduate or graduate degree programs during the program year
(September 2006- May 2007).
 
Application postmark deadline is March 1.
