Writing Without Recording: A Workshop with Artist and Writer Rebecca La Marre
Apophony Press is a publication platform based in Saskatoon led by Rebecca La Marre and they are hosting a workshop as part of the Prairie Art Book Fair. The objectives of the workshop are to explore the intersection of literature and art-criticism, developing new approaches to writing in/about the visual arts that move away from traditional theories of what writing in the arts can be.
The workshop involves both writing activities using provided prompts and custom tool kit along with a group discussion. The tool kit includes clay tablets treated with a white-board surface that participants can write on and erase. To arrive at the depth of discussion that fully integrates practical action with theory, the workshop will require around 4 hours.
The workshop will be led in English but participants are encouraged to conduct the writing activities in whatever language is most comfortable.
Readings will be provided in advance but are not mandatory for participation.
Snacks and breaks will be provided.
Space is limited, interested participants can email email@example.com
with the Subject Line: “writing workshop” to confirm their spot.
