The Word is Art: A Writing Workshop Online 
with Brian Evans-Jones

Friday | 9:00 am-12:00 pm (Arizona Time) | ONLINE!

Painting, sculpture, photography, and other art have inspired many great pieces of writing. This workshop gives you the opportunity to craft your own writing in this tradition.  Using a wide range of artworks, we will explore multiple different ways of thinking about art and using it as a starting point for your own poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Along the way, you’ll discover how to use art to overcome blocks, enrich your writing, and create ideas you never would have expected.

Suitable for writers of all levels of experience and all genres, including poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.

Enrolled students will receive an email invitation with a link to join the Zoom meeting platform.

Very useful workshop. Well run—good value. Brian's depth of experience proved invaluable.

A satisfying day. Surpassed the usual workshop. I enjoyed the experience and felt I had worked hard and learned something of value.

I loved it and found it so useful to fulfil a passion I've always wanted to explore.

Great workshop, really enjoyable and well executed!

Good thorough day with appropriate level of challenge
