Creative writing: Method and medium workshop with Rachel Gippetti

This workshop will explore the generative power of creative writing practices. Participants will engage in a variety of writing based activities, experimentations and discussions aimed at exploring how creative writing can enhance and/or be integrated into art practices of all kinds. Free writing, poetry and speech will be some of the forms/techniques that will be played with during the workshop. The activities and following conversations and readings will hopefully allow individuals to gain a sense of how creative writing might fit into their practice – as a method or as a medium in itself.

This workshop is FREE online for CAMP Members.
