In this workshop artists will learn how to:
Invent new metaphors;

  • Toe the line between experimentation and narcissism;
  • Find a newsworthy topic that will engage readers;
  • Embody or disembody art criticism (your choice);
  • Use a microscope where others use a telescope;
  • Work with an editor;
  • and more (or less);
  • then we eat pizza.

Participation by RSVP only. Workshop is limited to 20 people maximum. Bring a pen and paper.
