Our editors provide brief and thorough critiques, and each submission is treated with the utmost respect. Says one participant “Thank you, thank you, thank you for your perceptive, astute and precise reading of my manuscript.”
A prize of $1,000 and a chapbook publication is given annually by Kore Press.

Inner child class stating
Remember elementary school art classes? Remember the thrill of discovery – of creating without restriction, just for the pure joy of it? If you would like to recapture that experience as an adult, these classes are for you. You need not be experienced. I will guide you in different and varied techniques to help you express yourself in a free and relaxed yet exciting and fulfilling atmosphere. You will be working in a real working artist’s studio – mine. To begin, you will work mainly in oil sticks which are oil paint in stick form. You don’t need brushes or paint thinners. I will show you many innovative techniques I have discovered on my own and I will share with you new ones as I discover them. You will begin to make your own discoveries and branch out to different media.

CDS has supported its past work almost entirely through fees and contracts. We are coming to you now because the need for this work is urgent and innovation needs investment. Once StoryLab is established, we’ll be able to support it through grants from funders who care about the issues and communities involved. Now, we need your tax-deductible donation to support the planning, partnership, and development work needed to get StoryLab up and running.
With partners around the world, StoryLab will experiment with media, platforms, and techniques, seeking new ways of capturing and using stories for maximum impact. We’ve designed five pilot projects to explore. They address five critical areas where story can help build healthy democracy and communities, touching on civic engagement, civility and mindfulness, place and connection, service, and overcoming legacies of violence. If you’d like more information about partnering with us (or anything else about StoryLab), please contact Joe Lambert (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Arlene Goldbard (email@example.com).
Any contribution will help (and if you contribute at least $25, we have some great premiums for you!). If you pledge $250 or more, you will also be able to direct your pledge to your favorite pilot project, and that will help determine which ones should be developed first.
StoryLab will show how things would change if everyone lifted their voices as citizens of the world, calling out what doesn’t reflect their deepest values and standing up for what does. Please give today and help CDS change the story so that together, we can change the world. We appreciate your support. Thanks for staying connected to CDS, and thanks for your help now!
