Write Using Photographs

Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Write Using Photographs

Course Code: ARTS2085

Just as photographers find the extraordinary in the ordinary by exploiting available angles, incorporating contrasting light, uncovering shadows, or by drawing your eye to the unexpected, writers can do the same thing using words. Incorporating similar techniques into writing, explore photographs and everyday imagery, and familiar experiences and people in unique and interesting ways that will help develop and create captivating short stories. Using photographs as a starting point for short stories is a unique and effective way to alleviate a new writer's inhibitions and help seasoned writers overcome writer's block. Because photographs and imagery initiate thought and provoke feeling, they intuitively evoke a compelling story just waiting to be told. Instruction is suitable for new and experienced writers.
