Join us Saturday, October 19, 2019 at the Neutra Gallery for Words & Pictures: A Writing Workshop for Visual Artists by writer and artist Nancy Spiller.

Nancy Spiller

If every picture tells a story, what does your work have to say? Is it poetry, fiction or personal memoir? This half -day workshop will inspire you to find the narrative tucked into your art. From an introduction to the ancient practice of ekphrastic writing, to samples of acclaimed authors drawing on visual art, to lively writing exercises revealing metaphor, telling details, emotions, and attitudes, you’ll find new ways to engage with your own visual “statements.” The workshop will meet Saturday, October 19, from 1 to 4 pm, at Glendale’s Neutra Institute Gallery and Museum (2379 Glendale Blvd, Silverlake) during SCWCA’s @Enough members’ exhibit. Enrollment is limited to 15 students. Cost is $20. 

Nancy Spiller 
is an exhibiting artist, SCWCA member, and author of the novel Entertaining Disasters (Counterpoint Press) and the memoir Compromise Cake: Lessons Learned From My Mother’s Recipe Box (Counterpoint Press), which she also illustrated. She created a version of this workshop for the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program, where she has been an instructor for 10 years.
