Writing from Home (via Zoom)

Tuesday, March 2, 2021, 1:30 AM

Local writers, working in a variety of genres and forms, meet with participants for two, 90-minute sessions during consecutive weeks. Each writer, inspired by a work(s) of art in the Museum's collection, chooses the theme, format, and form for the workshop; allowing both the writers and participants maximum choice. Participants have an opportunity to also share their writing. Sign up for both sessions with one writer or sample across disciplines.

Writing the Frozen Moments

The stories we tell about our lives play in a series of memories, similar to the images in Robin Vaccarino's "California Freeze Frame" prints. In this workshop, tell a story from your life through a frozen moment in your memory. By piecing together these disparate memories into a sequence, you will tell stories that are larger than the sum of their parts.

Inspiration Images
Robin Vaccarino's California Freeze Frame series (1979)
