Every Picture Holds a Story (archived)

EVERY PICTURE HOLDS A STORY (Writing Inspired by Visual Images) 

Are you ready to preserve the stories your pictures could tell, for yourself and or future generations? Would you enjoy using photographs, paintings, and other visual art as writing inspiration? Come learn foolproof methods for capturing treasured family stories and creating memorable fiction, nonfiction, memoir, and poetry from images. We’ll look at ways successful writers have used images to inspire their works, including Sue Monk Kidd’s The Secret Life of Bees. Participants are encouraged to bring images of their own they would like to work with, especially photographs. A wide variety of images will be provided as well. Expect beautiful results from this playful, yet profound process whether you write essays, memoir, poems, and/or fiction. All levels welcome.
