How do you draw readers into a story? It’s all in the details! Readers want to touch, feel, see, smell and hear as they immerse themselves in a new world. In this fiction writing workshop, practice using all your senses to convey vivid settings, relatable characters and the essence of real life. We will draw inspiration from The Outwin 2022: American Portraiture Today and discuss how the artists use physical and emotional textures in their work to draw viewers into the visual narrative. This fun, interactive workshop is open to writers of all levels, ages18+.

As a writer, how do you honor the people you most cherish? How do you pay tribute to your ancestors? In this creative writing workshop, we will draw inspiration from the One Life: Maya Lin exhibition, a survey of the architect, sculptor and environmentalist’s life and work, to explore our own personal histories in connection with our families or chosen communities. The work will incorporate techniques focused on memoir writing and personal reflection. Open to writers of all levels, ages18+.
