EVENT DESCRIPTION: CONVERSATIONS WITH IMAGERY: RESPONDING TO THE WORLD AROUND US
3-Hour Writing Workshop with Author Page Lambert
During this 3-hour writing workshop, Page Lambert will guide us through the sensory world of language. Using responsive writing techniques, we will look at the world through the multi-cultural lens of National Geographic’s 50 Greatest Photographs, experiencing the varied perspectives of the world through the eyes of these many featured photographers. From this broad and expansive viewpoint, we will narrow our perspective as we are drawn into the intimate edges of the human and natural world as experienced through the artful eye of Kiliii Yuyan. This writing workshop will move us into a deeper understanding of the power of details and sense-based language, and into a deeper knowing of the power of writing from a responsive relationship with the world.
Page Lambert’s writing is found inside monumental sculptures at the Denver Art Museum, online at Huffington Post, and in dozens of anthologies about the West.
