Wandering around London, England, I passed a small art gallery advertising “68 self-portraits.” Maybe it was 58. Or 71. But it was a big enough number to seem impressive. The gallery was closed that day, but something about the idea has been banging around in my head ever since.

And so we arrive at 10 Self-Portraits, a workshop experiment. Over the course of four hours, up to 10 writers are invited to take part in 10 exercises. Some will be very short. Some will be longer. Some may involve collaboration. Some we’ll share and others we will keep to ourselves. All of them will attempt in one way or another to uncover a piece of who we are as artists, creators, and individuals. 

As with all my workshops, 10 Self-Portraits will follow the Amherst Writers & Artists method to ensure a safe, non-critical environment. This workshop is open to adult writers of all levels: beyond a pen, notebook and a willingness to participate, there are no prerequisites.
