Textual Image, and Visual Text: Composing with Image and Text with Diana Khoi Nguyen
Saturday, May 6
9 AM – 12 PM PST/ 12 – 3 PM EST
Like a photo locket, this session is twofold: in the first half, we will pore over works from across the genres which employ dynamic use of images and text: image as text, text as image, text in image, and so forth. What if creative writing includes writing with image as well? In the second half, we will try our hand at composing with our own palette of text and images, via generative prompts inspired by our readings/lookings/findings from the first segment. There will be no official “workshopping” of what we make, but a joyful offering of our dis/uncoverings.
