Writing From Your Photo Stream - Student Day of Poetry

Your Pictures As Poetry: Writing From Your Photo Stream
Kelly DuMar

Our photo streams show what we care about and hope to preserve, what moves and mystifies us, the people, places and experiences that bring meaning into our lives. In this workshop, we’ll write poetically from personal photos that arrest our attention and unpack why they do. Writing poetry from photos allows us to express the truth of what we feel - and know - and haven’t said, as we capture the beauty and deeper meaning of an image in words. We’ll shape images into poems that reveal our personalities, identity relationships and creativity. Please bring photos to work from!

Kelly will present two 70-minute Writing From Your Photo Stream writing workshops for middle and high school students,
