“D-Crit” is not Chip Kidd‘s D.J. name. It’s the School of Visual Arts’s new MFA in Design Criticism program, the first graduate-level degree program dedicated to critical writing about design in the United States. Tomorrow is your chance to learn all about the two-year program (and catch a glimpse of the man himself on the final day of Steven Heller Week) at an open house for the program that runs from 2:00-4:00pm at SVA (133 West 21st Street). This is the first in a series of events anticipating the D-Crit program’s inauguration next fall. A Design Criticism Reading Series at the KGB Bar kicks off on November 29, and this spring, look for a panel discussion on the future of design criticism.
Taught by an editor at Alloy Entertainment, the goal of this class is to finish your YA or middle grade novel in 12 weeks. Starting on March 10, you will learn how to write a proposal that doesn’t end up in the slush pile, evaluate your story arc for a teen audience, get an agent (if you need one!), and more!
