Instructor: Erica Trabold

Is the story of your life orange or yellow? Quiet or loud? Swirled or jagged or curved? What does your project look like when you paint it, collage it, or doodle it with eyes closed? Participants in this workshop will do everything but write. Instead, we will create visual artifacts to guide us through writing’s most difficult days—mood boards to serve as touchstone and roadmap, reminder and inspiration, focused visions that keep us on track to tell our stories and tell them well.

Erica Trabold is the author of the essay collection Five Plots. Her essays have appeared in South Dakota Review, Essay Daily, Seneca Review, The Rumpus, and elsewhere. Erica was a 2016 artist-in-residence at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts.
