Creativity Bound: Make a poem, make a book
2/21/15, 9am-6pm - $175 [sign up and pay with PayPal]

Challenge yourself to create in two media at a workshop combining the visual and poetic arts. Over the course of this one-day intensive, we will work back and forth between building a poem and creating an art book. I have developed this workshop with Laurie Glover, published poet and professor of writing at UC Davis. We have designed a series of steps through which non-artists and non-writers can stimulate their creativity in one area by linking it with another. We will use poetry writing exercises to inspire your creation of a book and use the choices you make in creating that book to further your poetry writing. The guided workshop will run from 9 am to 6 pm Saturday; additional open studio time will be available on Sunday. Participants can stay one or two nights or attend the workshop only.
