ILCW-I:  ILCW Writer’s Session A

Scheduled for: Tuesday 9:00 to 11:00 AM – Aula 2.7

Objective: You may not be a professional writer but words are a part of your craft. Photographers need words for captions and articles that use their photos; artists use words to enhance their visual statements; filmmakers use words for their scripts and voice over text for documentaries; musicians use lyrics to make the words resonate with the melody. Don’t forget the need for promotional text for upcoming show or opening. And in some cases words are used in writing grants to appeal for funding the project.

Moderator—Boyd Norton Serengeti Watch
