The GWG Presents:
"WRITING WITH A RAZOR"
SATURDAY 20 JANUARY 2024
Where: Maison Internationale des Associations, rue des Savoises 15, 1205 Geneva
This workshop will explore ways we can interrogate and craft more vivid and precise imagery. Studying the inner workings of poetry and prose from some of the best contemporary writers working today, you will collect and construct your own central and subordinate images in surprising, challenging, and effective ways.
From the blinding to the subtle – the sonorous, kinaesthetic, acrid, textured – you will be encouraged to look past what is immediate, to the secondary and tertiary mechanisms of your images, and learn how the precision of just one well-chosen word can evoke multiple senses and meanings.
Full details TBA
