Williams, is a graduate of Second City and has forged a career as one of the most promising new artists. And the Creative Writing Class was developed by and is taught by Rhymefest, who was recently nominated for a Grammy for co-writing on Kanye West’s Yeezus album, and he won a Grammy for co-writing the hit “Jesus Walks” with Kanye West.

Students then create an original song. No matter their background, they learn how to record music in a state of the art Recording Studio. And finally, they learn the fundamentals of poetry, so that they can become more conscious of their lyrics and ultimately improve on their ability to create music that matters.

This is a great opportunity for any budding singer/songwriter/producer you may know that’s trying to break into the industry. And what better name to have behind you , musically, than Kanye West. Applications are due on or before Friday, February 28, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. and can be found at Donda’s House. Applicants can actually download the PDF and type directly on it, save it as a new file and return it via email or print out the application, hand-write their responses, scan it and return it via e-mail.  Additionally, they’re looking for a Creative Writing Instructor as well! Interested candidates should submit resumes and cover letters on or before 2/24/14. The job description and application can be found here!
