ONSITE: Deep Dive: Writing Images
Dive deep into the realm of images to discover new possibilities for your poetry and prose. In this workshop, we'll tap into memory, imagination, description, observation, and discovery, through a number of playful, strange, and thought-provoking writing activities. These exercises will inspire new work and offer fresh ways of looking at your works in progress, in the style and genre of your choosing.
- Class time will be spent reading and discussing a variety of texts, with an emphasis on workshop discussion of our own work and writing by other people. We will aim to make time for a writing exercise each week, but students who wish to complete finished work should expect to continue writing outside of class time.
Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
This is an On-site course. Students must follow current Covid-19 protocols, as outlined on our website. For more info visit visarts.org. On-site courses do not come with studio access outside of class time. Paid open studio access is available through our Studio Access Program: if interested please visit visarts.org.
