1 of 4 Auvillar Arts Workshops at VCCA-France: How I See It: Autobiography in Impressionist Poetry & Prose

In this workshop set in the lovely medieval village of Auvillar, participants will use their experiences and sensory observations to create short autobiographical essays and poems influenced by impressionist theory. Emphasis will be placed on experimenting with both style and structure to capture emotional and aesthetic accuracy and truth in writing.

Jacqueline Kolosov, author of Modigliani's Muse, will lead writers through poetry workshops while Kirsten Lunstum, author of Swimming with Strangers, will lead creative nonfiction workshops. All participants will work in both genres. How I See It: Autobiography in Impressionist Poetry & Prose takes place July 10 - 17.
