Across cultures and literary history, the literary arts have had a longstanding connection to visual culture. In this class, we’ll look at various examples of the ways in which literary and visual artists have approached bringing text and image together – we’ll look at ekphrastic poetry, visual artists using text, and literary authors using image and visual forms to innovate their work.  We’ll focus primarily on creative strategies to generate your own ideas for writing and try out a variety of writing exercises. 

Bring a laptop or notebook to take notes and use for exercises. We’ll meet for one, three-hour session and explore a range of exercises and creative strategies. This class is for beginning and intermediate writers.
