Just to celebrate tonight’s kick-off of the latest edition of my Hothouse Project course in Journalism As Craft And Art and the inauguration of our new Facebook page, here’s our stirring new manifesto:

Charles Shaar Murray’s “Journalism as Craft and Art” writing course is the basis of our alternative education group, The Hothouse Project, featuring the best of the ideals and artistic values of classic counter-culture. We share rigorous, hard-headed journalistic craft, to bring literary quality into even the most mundane journalistic tasks, and offer an inspiring alternative to the flatlining culture, showing you how to inject style and subversion into a timid, conformist media landscape. We’ll skill you up, sharpen your claws, broaden your bandwith and widescreen your horizons.

Hey … it brings a tear to MY eye …
