What you'll learn in this writing class:

Why write about your photography? Aren’t your pictures supposed to say it all? Ideally, but written cues can offer viewers helpful entry points into your work. If you exhibit your work, artist statements, project statements and biographies are necessities.

If you are applying for an artist residency, grant or a call for entry, writing eloquently will illuminate the intention and process that sparked your imagery. The bottom line is, effective communication elevates your work.

In this workshop, we explain “best practices” for starting and maintaining successful writing habits, offer valuable tips on expressing your genuine voice, and demonstrate examples of both clear and ineffectual communication.

Using these tools, each participant prepares a piece of writing to share in subsequent workshop sessions. By discussing your piece, editing, and presenting it again, as well as partaking in the same process for other members of our class, you will learn both by doing and observing. At the end of this workshop, each person will have a polished piece and a fresh approach to sharing their views on photography.

A link for the Zoom class meeting will be emailed to the attendees about one week prior to the start date. Please read the instructions included in the email.
