I'm three years out of school, my grades were semi-atrocious (or to
put it kinder, erratic), and I've actually forgotten the last name of
one of my writing teachers (terrible!). The thought of having to
scrounge up not just one, but three, rec letters is a tad horrifying.
I've ransacked your archives and think a class or seminar at a local
college would be just the ticket. Plus, it'd be a good refresher for,
ahem, the rigors of academia. Could you please recommend any
programs, workshops, etc. in the city?
SFRD, this piano player in the coffeehouse is distracting me. (Actually, he's pretty good). I'm trying to think of the adult education classes that have the best balance of cost and quality.
I'm biased, and it will mean a train trip, but the Stanford Continuing Studies program is terrific. You could take a fiction class from Eric Puchner, Andrew Altschul, or Katharine Noel.
Otherwise, I guess you're looking at San Francisco State, City College, and maybe the New School?
I should know this. But currently I don't. Maybe our readers can help us out. If they don't, SFRC, write me back next week. I'll find an answer for you if it doesn't arise here. Rock on.
