Prose the topic on Sat­ur­day

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - PROFILES -

Brad Gam­bill, head of the English depart­ment at John Brown Univer­sity, will teach a work­shop ti­tled Con­struct­ing Ex­tra­or­di­nary Im­ages in Prose. This will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Sat­ur­day at the Vil­lage Writ­ing School in the Cen­ter for Non­prof­its, 1200 W. Wal­nut St. in Rogers.

Many emerg­ing writ­ers have a too-nar­row con­cep­tion of the im­age, of­ten lim­it­ing it to a vis­ual de­tail. This work­shop will cover ad­di­tional im­agery tech­niques such as bridg­ing scenes with the “slid­ing im­age,” lay­er­ing im­ages to cre­ate en­ergy and ten­sion, “ly­ing” with the im­age, ar­gu­ing with im­ages and us­ing the ne­glected senses to con­struct im­ages.

The work­shop is open to the pub­lic. The cost is $25.
