Native Voices - three-week immersion course in Native literature
June 20-July 8
Held at Salish Kootenai College, Pablo
Montana Writing Project is delighted to partner with Salish Kootenai College to offer Native Voices, a Montana Writing Project satellite institute that is a three-week long immersion course in Native literature. It offers participants an equal balance between becoming acquainted with a long history and the contemporary reality of Native use of narrative and exposition. Over the course of the program, participants will be provided ample opportunities to do writing on their own, as well as the opportunity to produce and present an inquiry demonstration lesson that develops out of an investigation into teaching/learning issues concerning American Indians today. The institute will be held on the Salish Kootenai College in Pablo, and runs from June 20-July 8. The cost is $125. Seven graduate credits from the University of Montana, valued at more than $2000, are available for a recording fee of $135. Applications are available online at http://www.cas.umt.edu/english/mwp/documents/NativeVoicesApplication2011.pdf. For more information, call 406.243.4680 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
