From visual poetry to collage, diagrammatic work, scoring, asemic writing there is a long tradition of writing dedicated to its graphic and visual qualities. Collaged use of image alongside text can deepen and widen the narratives explored. Sound and lines can be made to cohabit. Other processes can very usefully assist towards creating visual structures, sketches, mappings and/or scores for projects or research.
Pursue connections between space, body and writing, featuring:
- Graphic Thinking
- Project Scoring
- Sketching Motion
- Collaged Contexts
Through individual briefs and small group discussions, Caroline Bergvall will give participants the opportunity to explore its graphic and spatial aspects as they connect with gestures and thoughts in motion.
- Relax into the inner connections and sense of freedom of drawing writing
- Spark new processes and ideas by assembling, cutting
- Explore unfamiliar ways of drafting, sketching new texts
- Join in small group discussions
This kind of practice can be usefully developed to inspire a longer piece of work or a project.

“Really valuable in terms of shifting my practice and opening up new lines of enquiry... the workshop was fun, inspiring, well-paced, efficiently organised and facilitated clearly and with warmth (a rare and precious combination!“
“The association between physicality of writing (breath) and mark, really opened things up. It's a great way of getting passed the vertigo of plans.”
This workshop is part of the ongoing series of writing intensives that I started during the global lockdowns to provide sustenance and exploration, ease isolation and maintain networks between arts practitioners. They have become increasingly geared towards my thinking through and trying out new paradigms of literary and interrelational arts practice.
