Whether you write fiction, poetry, non-fiction or memoir, art can be the catalyst for your very best work. Be inspired by color, form, image, common human experience. Feel the passion of the artist become the art of words.

This class will meet in Northwind Art's Jeanette Best Gallery where participants can view and interact with contemporary art. Group leader Joanne Clarkson will present examples about ways writers through the ages have not only written about art, but have written through it, taking the spirit of the work to craft their own visions.

During the workshop three exercises will be presented that writers can use to approach a new piece of writing. After time spent working students can share their drafts. Participants will be invited to submit work for a community reading event later in the year.

Students should bring writing materials, either electronic or paper notebooks are fine.

After registration, course details are available via the Northwind Art School learning portal, including course syllabus and supply information. Learn more
