Writing Workshop Inspired by The Outwin 2022: American Portraiture Today

National Portrait Gallery
8th and G Streets NW
Washington, D.C. 20001

How do you draw readers into a story? It’s all in the details! Readers want to touch, feel, see, smell and hear as they immerse themselves in a new world. In this fiction writing workshop, practice using all your senses to convey vivid settings, relatable characters and the essence of real life. We will draw inspiration from “The Outwin 2022: American Portraiture Today” and discuss how the artists use physical and emotional textures in their work to draw viewers into the visual narrative. This fun, interactive workshop is open to writers of all levels, ages 18+. Free–Registration required.
