Art & Flash 

with Anika Carpenter

Art & Flash with Anika Carpenter
Monthly online generative writing workshops featuring a new artwork each month for inspiration.

Each month we'll draw inspiration from an artwork. We'll spend a little time studying a painting, sculpture, photograph or installation, followed by a prompt inspired by the piece we've been looking at and time to write. There will be an opportunity to share what you have written if you would like to.
