How can we use art to open new avenues in our writing?
Using Photography to Inspire & Influence Your Writing explores the myriad of ways in which photography can inspire and influence your writing practice. Exercises in figuration, analyzing, and scene-based writing will give students tools to use photographs to enhance their creativity and write with specificity and intention, whether fiction or nonfiction. We'll discuss techniques used by writers such as Teju Cole, Celeste Ng, and Namwali Serpell.
This class will feature a mini-lecture, group discussion, writing exercises, and conclude with a sharing and feedback session (as always, sharing is optional). At the end of the seminar, you will have generated or developed ideas for your first draft.
Open to all prose writers (fiction, nonfiction, hybrid).
All class meetings will be held via Zoom. The link to join your Zoom classroom will be provided on the morning of your class. Please check spam folders if you do not receive an email confirmation upon registration. For more information on how to download or use Zoom, please click here.
