Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Participants will leave the workshop with a strong understanding of the concepts introduced, and how to apply the concepts to their own literary careers. Participants will come away with tangible, reachable next steps for their marketing and publishing needs. By marketing to groups outside of The Crossing Arts Alliance’s membership, we will broaden the community's awareness of the literary opportunities being offered by The Crossing Arts Alliance. The main evaluation method will be a survey to the participants to gain quantitative and qualitative feedback, as well as documenting oral feedback from conversations and social media. The outcome will be measured by the feedback from the class participants on the evaluation form and compiled, reported back to Five Wings Arts Council and used for similar programs. The instructors and project director will evaluate the level of engagement with the participants.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successful arts access/education project. Majority of participants/students showed an increase in awareness and understanding career development for literary artists. Vast majority indicated an overall positive experience.
