How can place be a character in a story? This class will use as inspiration the Farnsworth’s summer exhibitions depicting islands like Monhegan and the architectural renderings of the Homestead to spur re-imaginings of artworks into prose. Students will view a select work each week, write for forty-five minutes and share with the class for constructive feedback. The final week each student will choose his or her personal favorite to revise and present to the group. The goal of this workshop is to inspire participants to understand and incorporate place as a vibrant component of their work.
