While I am writing this post in retrospect, I would like to note a writing workshop I recently taught at the Vermont Studio Center. The entire project was the brainchild of NYC-based poet Rangi McNeil, author of The Missing (2003). Many visual arts VSC residents were in the middle of applications for graduate school, professorships, fellowships and new residencies. Many of these applicants needed help with artist statements, research statements and personal essays. McNeil orchestrated the entire event and asked me to lead and teach, given that I straddle both visual arts and writing. Our Writing Art Workshop was held Wednesday, December 20th at VSC's Mason House Library, and proved to be a beneficial experience for all participants.
Many thanks to Rangi McNeil, VSC and the many workshop attendees for your participation and support of the project!
