Writing Inside the Body
March 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Susan Sensemann will lead a 2 hour writing workshop at A.P.E. Gallery, 126 Main Street, Northampton in conjunction with a five-person exhibition “Physiotasmagorical” which investigates corporeal secrets that reside at the juncture of the clinical and the imaginary in fantastic conjurings of our internal selves. We will begin with a discussion of the “felt sense” as a way to approach a brief and longer writing/reading in response to the art. Participants should bring writing materials. This craft workshop is free and will take place on Wednesday, March 27 from 6:00-8:00pm. No registration necessary.
