Hum’s Summer Writing Workshop

Where: Carnegie Centre, Classroom II on the third floor
When: Five sessions meeting on June 20, 27, 29 & July 4, 6, from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm.
Facilitator: Claire Matthews

Drawing on Hum’s 2021/22 theme “All that you touch you change. All that you change, changes you,” over the course of five workshops this writing mini-series will focus on ekphrasis and book review writing, with a brief introduction to the art of writing first lines. Through meditative drawing, writing exercises and discussion, we’ll energize our writing practices and build confidence in putting words to the page. We’ll experiment with how our sentences can be changed by images—touch, sight, taste, sound and smell—and develop first lines, first drafts, and the first spark of an idea.
