A big part of becoming a good writer is honing your ability to see. It's not just a matter of accurately visualizing persons or places. Bringing that person or place to life on the page, and with feeling, requires that the writer consider the role of shading, contrast, perspective, and composition--all techniques in the visual artist's toolkit.

In this seminar we will see how these (and other) visual artist techniques are used in successful nonfiction and do writing prompts, (and quick sketches), to apply them to our own work. 

This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.

For a glimpse at how remote learning works, look no further than the deep Zoom discussion of writing and literature below:
