Sustaining the Soul Through Creative Discovery

Date/Time Saturday, January 18, 2014
from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

A Workshop Series of Words & Images
with guest poet/photographer Marilyn Hazelton

Description: Photographers, painters, poets and writers are invited to a creative process journey of seeing and writing to deepen appreciation for their own work and that of other artists. The program will also touch on the creative process as an avenue of emotional, mental and spiritual health. Marilyn will incorporate Japanese poetic forms into our meetings: haiku (a three phrase form); tanka (a five phrase form); and ginko (a nature walk that includes writing).


We will begin with a short presentation given by Florence, your host, on tips to enhance how we see and compose through the viewfinder. Then we will have time for a short ginko (taking photos and writing phrases to inspire our poetic writing).

Additionally, we will experiment with writing haiku and tanka sequences to see how linking these short poems can extend our poetry/photographic connections. The workshop will end with gentle critique as desired.


Each workshop is designed to stand on its own.

Cost: $30 per session

Limited to 18 participants for each workshop

When you attend a workshop, you will be invited to join our private group Facebook page “Click and Scratch” where we share poems, photographs and tips.
