INTENSIVE Workshop for :

Ginnah Howard

This is a SIX-HOUR Class

PICTURES WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS

Do you have photographs that when you look at them bring back flashes of memories?

 

For this workshop you are asked to bring six photographs as prompts for writing six short pieces. These might be done in various genres: poems, memoir, personal essay, dialogues…

 

Consider having all the photos be related to each other: your seven ages as a woman, family rituals & traditions, ancestral histories, biographical “renderings” about your mother or another member of your family…

 

As soon as you register for the workshop, I will contact you by email to send you some models that feel like they’ve been inspired by photos—that kind specificity.
