Poetry Workshop - How To Series: How to visually showcase your poetry?
Time & Location
About the Event
Our Poetry Hive leader Alice and fellow hive member Tala will be discussing different ways to create and improve the visual aesthetics of written poetry.
Join us for a Q&A with Tala covering how she creates artwork for her poetry. We'll be learning where Tala gets her inspirations from, her design process and the tools she uses to help her achieve the desired aesthetics.
We hope at the end of this session you'll have a better understanding of how to create and improve poetry based artwork.
