The Certificate Program empowers a new generation of DIY writers and artists to thrive in the rapidly changing landscape of modern publishing. Participants choose between one of three tracks and spend two or three semesters creating and publishing their work.
With instruction from many of Portland’s finest writers, cartoonists and self-publishers, Certificate Program students will write, design, hand-craft and publish modest print runs of their own books, zines, comics and E-books.
Our low student-teacher ratio and individual advisor program guarantees personal attention and care. One of our main goals is to help each student develop their own independent style and craft. We strive to make our Certificate workshops student-centered, discussion-based and lively.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2014/2015 term in Poetry, Fiction/NonFiction and Comics/Graphic Novel and are hosting an info session for interested people. There will be some light refreshments available.
