Writing is an important skill for all creative practitioners, whether it is a part of their creative work, a professional ability to represent ideas or as an extension of critical engagement. The purpose of the course is to provide a structure and context for an active engagement with writing. Examples and contexts for different styles/approaches will be discussed to broaden the potential relationships between word and image, language as an integral part of studio practice, writing as a means of supporting professional development, and as a way to communicate critical ideas. Students will be expected to develop a personal relationship to language that supports their specific goals as photographers/creative practitioners. Students will work individually, collaboratively, and will be expected to turn in weekly assignments as well as long-term projects.
