They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so have you ever tried to write ’em? In this Monthly Writing Session, we will lean on methods borrowed from Kiese Laymon and Nick Flynn, writing ourselves into an image and writing from an image in our memory. This session is cross genre, appropriate for nonfiction, fiction, and poetry.
