12. Visual Literacy: Using Images to Enrich Your Writing
Alan Cumyn
Writers Retreat
12:30 - 3:00pm.

Award-winning novelist Alan Cumyn guides you through image-based exercises to unlock your creativity while exploring fundamentals of strong, visually rich writing. Whether we write fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or memoir, we've all heard the advice to show, not tell. Using evocative paintings, photographs, and texts as jumping-off points, students craft new work paying particular attention to mood, atmosphere, situation, detail, what needs to be on the page... and what does not. Come prepared to play and to write! Limited enrolment.
