Visual Narratives – Finding Words Through Images
As part of the Writers at the Woolshed Literature Festival, Alison Pouliot presents this highly interactive field-based workshop.
As forms of artistic expression, photography and poetry share much in common. Both are the outcome of intense honing, of distillation, of eloquent exactitude. Both can convey a point of view or story that goes beyond mere description. Photographers often borrow literary devices such as irony, but writers also have much to gain from photographs. This workshop explores the crossovers and co-habitations of words and images and how they might enhance and inspire one another.
Participants are encouraged to bring a pencil, camera, or neither.
