One does not need to have been a previous participant in Young Chicago Authors' programs like Louder Than a Bomb or Wordplay, you just need to have an interest and dedication towards teaching artistry. TABI will meet three hours, twice a month to focus on curriculum building and implementation, classroom management. We will also focus on the craft of basics of being a professional artist, generative workshops & editing of your own work. Occasional attendance at YCA programs may also be required as well. This is an unpaid internship. Participating in TABI does not guarantee you will be hired by YCA in the event that the organization is hiring.
