Following the Threads of Your Photographs

Retreat into YOU in this image driven workshop.  Through a series of guided exercises rimmed with ample white space, we’ll explore new creative identities and unearth the poet in you.  Over the course of our five-day journey we will study deeply existing photographs as well images newly collected on location during the week - using them as ongoing prompts for crafting organic verse. 

The workshop will begin with an opportunity for participants to clear their personal slates and reconnect with their deepest creative intentions.  From that place of presence we will begin to mine for the bigger pictures tucked in photographs - giving voice to those images through free verse.  The workshop will also include poetry readings and extensive conversation on marketing and the role of social media in identifying and reaching your audience.  Participants will leave with clarity and confidence, empowered to listen and share their newfound voices.  The Poet in You is ideally suited for folks new to writing and to photographers of all levels.  If available, please bring an existing body of work, a camera, a mobile device such as an ipad or laptop and also your wide open mind. 

We all have those certain photographs… the ones which beckon us to stay.  Tucked in their mystery lies a charge - something further still to be expressed.  This workshop offers a purposeful creative landing in which to extend their essence.
