What does an image do? How do images move or surprise us? In this writing workshop, we will examine how images shift, transform, and ultimately, move a reader. We will take our “go-to” images and explode them, looking at etymology, mythology, context and association. Finally, through writing prompts & workshop, we will read, write, and workshop poems that use recurring imagery to create tension and surprise.
The Transformational Image with Cathy Linh Che is Thursday, February 20, 2020 from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Piper Writers House (450 E Tyler Mall, Tempe, AZ 85281).
