If you are a writer, this is a your city. Walk in the footsteps of Isabel Allende, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Allan Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Rebecca Solnit, Alice Walker, and yes––Mark Twain. Seek out the City Lights bookstore, climb the rickety wooden steps upstairs and sit among the ghosts of the “beat” writers and poets. Read “Howl’ in this hollowed space. OK, that’s the past. But the future is here as well. This city is filled with social media genius. Filled with the giants of content creation. Filled with the brains that invented new ways of writing.
AKQA, Goodby Silverstein, Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners, Brainblaze, Heat, Hub, Mekanism, etc.etc. From these agencies, and dozens of others, come art directors, copywriters, and creative directors to the school once a week to teach.
