Christopher teaches writing, both fiction and poetry, at The Writers Studio in the West Village, NYC. Christopher’s class is the Level 1 introduction to the Writers Studio method. Visit the class schedule on the Writers Studio website.
From the website: “All students new to The Writers Studio NYC start with Level I. Since we approach teaching with our own method and vocabulary, even experienced writers with publications and/or MFAs will find plenty that is new and challenging in Level I. Our short weekly exercises are designed to stimulate students’ imaginations while also teaching a lot of nuts-and-bolts narrative strategies. Students learn that a narrative voice is born out of conscious creation and is not merely the voice we use when speaking or keeping a journal. We encourage students to turn autobiographical fragments into publishable work by using different narrative personas to tell their story in fiction and poetry.”
In 2017, Christopher X. Shade and Sylvie Bertrand co-founded the literary journal Cagibi, at cagibilit.com. The Cagibi journal’s quarterly issues feature stories, poems, personal narratives, works in translation, and visual art from around the world.
Cagibi also offers writing retreats.
Sign up for the Cagibi newsletter to receive announcements of new issues, open reading periods, upcoming retreats, and other Cagibi news.
