Building The Emotional Image, with Natalie Diaz



“An image is more than what we show our readers–it is story, it is history, it is emotion. When we seek the perfect image, we filter our writing and cut ourselves off from the possibilities of meaning and emotion–the things that make both the writer and the reader feel.”- Natalie Diaz

In this craft talk, given at the 2015 Summer Workshop, Diaz moves through a series of readings and exercises to help you discover what your images really mean to you, and what they can mean to your readers.
