Join the intimate setting of Studio 73 over tea to write in your favourite forms (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and so on) inspired by local art prints in the studio. For novice or expert wordsmiths alike, we’ll spend time developing techniques on writing from art, and then shift into a supportive critique group of giving and receiving feedback.
