LOCATION: LIVE ON ZOOM
Need ideas to help you start writing? Join us for a monthly pop-up workshop co-presented by Phoenix College and ASU's Piper Center for Creative Writing.
Each session includes a 30-minute mini-class and a writing prompt exploring some aspect of craft—setting, dialogue, character development, etc.—followed by focused writing time and the opportunity to read your work to the group.
This workshop will be hosted online as part of our virtual event series.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This month, instructor Shawnte Orion discusses "Antimatter Images and Conspicuous Honesty."
From the instructor: "There are only so many ways to describe what is on the page, but negative space is infinite. This workshop will explore those outer reaches and experiment with how objects get illuminated by shadows through poems from Julio Cortazar, Jeffrey McDaniel, and Bunkong Tuon. Together, we’ll apply those techniques on a personal level to hide 'the lie that tells the truth' in plain sight and use alternative context to obscure secrets into something surreal."
