Shakespeare Comes to CiRCE

Introducing the new CiRCE Academy Literature Intensives
Feb 12, 2015

Ben Jonson wrote that William Shakespeare “was not of an age but for all time!”  The greatest English playwright - a master of tragedy, comedy, history, and sonnet - Shakespeare is one of the most prolific and influential writers in history.  So, the CiRCE Academy, is giving you more opportunities to spend time with Shakespeare!

On-Campus Classes     

We are delighted to introduce the first of what we hope will be many on-campus intensives.  If you would like to study Hamlet with Andrew Kern in person, then you can do it very soon!  From March 30-April 3, 2015 (just a handful of weeks away), Andrew will conduct a weeklong Hamlet class at The CiRCE Institute.

Registration is now open for this class, so if you would like more information or want to register, just visit our “On-Campus Classes” page here.  Note: course certificates will be available for students and teachers (upon request).

Online Intensives

And, starting this fall, you can join us for weeklong classes through specific works of Shakespeare, taught by our excellent faculty.  These courses are perfect for students looking for additional literature studies, for teachers who want to continue their training, and for anyone who simply wants the enjoyment of reading great literature with others. 

In September, Andrew Kern will teach an online intensive of Hamlet, Shakespeare’s tragic masterpiece.  And, in November, Leah Lutz, the architect of the newly launched Lost Tools of Writing (5th edition) and Head Mentor of our West Coast Apprenticeship, will teach Much Ado about Nothing, one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. 

Registration for these intensives is now open, so visit our “Online Course Offerings” page here, if you want to know more or would like to register.

Stay tuned, as we will have even more on-campus and online intensive classes coming up!
