The Live Ideas Institutes are back! Our Spring institute will be on April 13th-19th from 7-8:30pm. All pieces are welcomed: fiction or non-fiction, essays or poems, short stories, and artwork! The purpose of these institutes is to help students perfect their pieces alongside their scholarly and artistic peers. There is also a scholarship for those who attend each day of the institute. We always begin on a Wednesday, continue to Thursday, and then break for Friday and the weekend. We then meet back-to-back on Monday and Tuesday to complete the Institute. Apply here:
