Writing an Art Inspired Ghost Story

Online Class with JC Wayne

Wednesday, October 13, 5:00-7:00pm EST

With the gothic atmosphere of nights around the campfire and October's Halloween, we turn to writing an art-inspired (happy!) ghost story poem. Our muse art is "Once Upon a Time" by Kari Ganoung-Ruiz. We'll explore creating a sense of mystery and suspense (with positive resolution) through sample poems, quick writing prompts, simple meditative warm-ups to "dial up" our creativity, interpreting the art of Kari's painting for "ghostly" elements and crafting a poem.

Special bonus: Kari will be in attendance to share the story of the painting and to answer any questions.
