- $50 – $65

Gail Peck

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a family photo album probably has enough content to inspire several books! In this class we’ll use family photos culled from our own albums and attics as springboards for writing about life––our childhoods, our ancestors, our families today, and our dreams for the future. We’ll also experiment with using photographs of unknown people and places as prompts for creating persona poems or fictional character sketches. Writers of all forms and genres––novelists, poets, essayists, memoirists––will leave this session with writing prompts, several short drafts of new work, and a new way of looking at family history.
