HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!! XXX
I love using images to generate language – and this week in the weekly writing workshop I facilitate for people in addiction recovery, we looked at five photographs – three by Mary Ellen Mark, and two by William Eggleston:
and we tried to use these images as inspiration to generate poetry (poems). I don’t always get the opportunity to attempt the exercises whilst I’m facilitating, but I love this kind of image-generated exercise – so I gave it a go. Instead of focussing on one photograph, I utilised all five, and this is what I came up with.
Why not give it a go yourself and see what you come up with….
Super happy to see the poetry collaboration myself and Sarer Scotthorne produced/performed for the diisonance project has been published in a limited edition diisonance book and is available for purchase from @hesterglock_press here:
Videos of the diisonance event and the performed collaborations can be viewed here:
I have three prose poems up over at the wonderful Occulum site @theocculum – go read them at the link Xx
