We’ll borrow from the techniques and language of photography to write new poetic work, drawing especially on observations from the world around us. We’ll also work with photographic images themselves for inspiration, using both found images we’ll supply and at least one photograph you’ll bring from home. By the end, you’ll have generated at least three new pieces and have a variety of approaches to add to your writer’s toolbox. Open to writers at all levels of experience.
