Your Pictures as Poetry - Writing From Your Photo Stream FILLING

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

Our photo streams show what we care about and hope to preserve, what moves and mystifies us, the people, places and experiences that bring meaning into our lives. In this workshop, we’ll write from personal photos that arrest our attention and unpack why they do, by exploring the unspoken world of your images. You’ll generate remarkable raw material that reveals insight and emotion you can shape into beautiful, original writing. Writing poetry from photos allows us to express the truth of what we feel - and know - and haven’t said, as we capture the beauty and deeper meaning of an image in words. Please bring photos to work from!
