This workshop has been moved to our online video conferencing platform, Zoom. The dates and times will remain the same. You can view brief tutorials on using the platform here.

Reinvigorate your writing over lunch, using art as your muse. Engage in visual analysis of the photography of Gordon Parks, uncovering personal connections to the piece and responding in poetry or prose. Through prompts and free writing, you’ll flesh out character, setting, and emotional responses to create vibrant new works of your own.

Teaching Style: Tara's approach is open and discussion-based. Writing and reading are subjective, and everyone has different tastes. The point is to be able to clarify why you react a certain way to a work--what techniques are effective, or conversely, where are the opportunities to make the piece even stronger?
