What Big Eyes You Have: Crafting Body Images in Poetry and Prose
with Deborah Fries
Whether you’re a poet or a prose writer, beginner or veteran, you know that it’s often hard to create fresh imagery when it comes to the human body. Whether you’re writing about the body as desirable object or failing subject, the search for the right image can be illusive.
This workshop will explore how original, compelling and memorable images are created and used in both poetry and prose. Open to all, this content may be especially useful for health care providers who wish to write about their experiences, as well as for those who are exploring body issues in their writing.
Deborah Fries is a poet and essayist and winner of prizes in narrative medicine from The Philadelphia College of Physicians and Narrative Matters/Project Hope. She has taught writing workshops about the body offered by The Loft Literary Center, Musehouse and Open Book Elkins Park. She’s currently at work on a collection of nonfiction essays about race, genetics and memory.
