This spring write@253 has the unique opportunity of welcoming letterpress artist Jessica Spring and her students from Pacific Lutheran University’s Elliott Press for a series of workshops called “PLU@253.” What is letterpress, you may ask? Well, letterpress printing is one of the original forms of printing; it involves inking type and pressing the type to paper in order to produce an image. We want our Write@253 students to experience making books with their own two hands, which is why we have chosen a set of workshops that is focused on letterpress and book arts. We will be making journals, bookmarks, paper, and even T-shirts!
