Finding Your Visual Voice

Conference Workshop

This session will focus on The Art of Seeing as fuel for the writer's creative fire.  By drawing parallels to the artistic choices professional photographers make to create meaningful images, photographer and writer Sandra Vander Schaaf will lead several exercises designed to nurture the foundational skills of observation and reflection, enhance understanding of visual perception, explore the role of visual writing in character development and establishing the writer's visual voice, and develop compositional skills. Participants will come away with a fresh understanding of how The Art of Seeing can infuse their writing with greater clarity, depth, and vitality.
