What is created at the intersection of text and image? In this Northwest Writing Institute course, we’ll examine public art, graffiti, flyers on telephone poles, black Sharpie marks on the bathroom walls, poetry, graphic novels, ‘zines, and manifestos. 

We’ll look at artists who blend commentary into their visual work, and writers whose prose strays into other art forms. By observing, scribbling, and dabbling in visual language ourselves, we’ll study how these two art forms work together to document what one form alone could not.

  • Northwest Writing Institute classes are offered to teachers, counselors, parents, veterans, and all community members interested in the power of stories to help us understand and practice human connections for the good of all.
