Lens and Pens: Vermilion Cliffs
September 20, 2017-September 23, 2017


Learn to weave images and prose on this fun and inspirational workshop, led by two experienced photographers and published authors, Guy Tal and Colleen Miniuk-Sperry.
With a focus on creative writing skills, we'll help you:
  • Structure your writing process
  • Introduce you to effective techniques for writing photographic and personal essays suitable for publication
  • Venture into writing expressive poetry
We'll kickoff the workshop with a brief introduction and overview on Wednesday evening. Then, Thursday through Sunday afternoon, with the beautiful Vermilion Cliffs and Marble Canyon country around Lee's Ferry as our backdrop, we will work on both photography and writing assignments. Time in the field will be augmented by classroom sessions in which we'll offer lectures covering topics such as: utilizing a storytelling arc, critiquing and editing your work, generating new ideas and evolving good creative habits. Each participant will have their written and visual expressions reviewed during daily critique sessions.
Designed for intermediate and advanced photographers who are comfortable with the technical aspects of photography, this workshop does not require nor assume any previous writing experience. Our goal is to make you feel more inspired and confident in communicating your knowledge, passions, and experiences in photographs and words. And you'll have a blast in the process!
