30 Days of Writing: Create a Book in a Month

Share

Category:

30 Days of Writing is a practical online course for writers and artists who'd enjoy the challenge of putting together a book in a month. The course is especially suited to anyone who'd like to take on a short project not necessarily linked to a book project you're working on. It's an opportunity to create that passion project you've been mulling over for years...

The online course is devised so that you can start a project from scratch and complete a first draft by the end of June. The course is a month-long commitment throughout June, and will benefit anyone who'd like the inspiration and support to write daily for 30 days alongside other writers from around the world.

The course includes:

  • 2 x 30-minute one-to-one consultations at the start and end of the course. In the first, we'll pin-point a manageable project for you to work on throughout the month. In the second consultation we'll look at ways of refining your draft and explore possible avenues of publication.
  • Daily prompts and suggestions. There'll be general prompts to work from, as well as prompts specific to your project.
  • Ongoing and personalised feedback throughout the course.
  • Advise about self-publishing, zines, and photobooks. Suggestions about places to submit your work for publication.
  • Two copies of 12 Doable Writing Projects.
  • The workshop is devised to suit writers of all levels who are willing to try out new ways of writing and thinking about writing.  

Dates: 1 June - 1 July 2019

Fee: £260 (£200 early-bird rate before 30 April)  

limited to 15 participants 

About the tutor: Shaun Levin is the author of Snapshots of The Boy, A Year of Two Summers and Seven Sweet Things, amongst other books. He is the creator of Writing Maps and runs The A3 Press, a new independent chapbook press. Shaun has been teaching creative writing for over twenty years and has worked closely with writers at all stages of their journey towards publication.

Reaching New Audiences: Social Media and Exhibition Strategies for Artists

Description

A professional development event for artists focusing on two key aspects of successful self marketing: social media and exhibition strategies.

The day will be split into two parts, either side of lunchtime. Tickets may be purchased for either both parts, or just Part One.

Part One, Presentations:

To begin, Emma Walker, Communications Manager at Parker Harris, will take you through how social media can be utilised by artists and creatives to reach new and diverse audiences. The presentation will look specifically at social media as a tool for engaging collectors whilst exploring how relationships built through social media channels can serve as a foundation for new collaborations and exhibition opportunities.

Subsequently, Emma Parker and Penny Harris, founding partners of Parker Harris, will share their experience and knowledge as regards best practice for artists. They will discuss all aspects necessary for the building and maintenance of a professional and successful artistic career. Topics covered will include:

talking about your work

sourcing and taking best advantage of exhibiting opportunities

pricing your work

gallery representation

commissioning

Part Two, Surgeries:

After lunch, attendees will have the opportunity to take part in two separate one-to-one surgeries. Each surgery will last 20 minutes and will be led by a member of the Parker Harris team. One surgery will focus on social media, the other on exhibition strategies: both surgeries will function as mini mentoring sessions, providing each attendee with advice and guidance tailored to their own artistic practice.

Coffee, tea and biscuits will be available throughout the day - these will be provided free of charge. There will be a break for lunch (12:45 - 1:30pm). There is an onsite cafe at Drawing Projects UK, Miranda's coffee shop or other cafes, pubs and restaurants within walking distance.

Dacia Gallery: Is pleased to announce Byzantium to the Renaissance: Egg Tempera and Gold Gilding Workshop in New York City. This workshop is intended as an introduction and revival of the centuries old tempera painting and gold gilding techniques for modern painters. To inspire and create stunning modern paintings with the knowledge, materials and techniques of the Byzantine and Renaissance masters. Students will learn to paint in egg tempera and water gild 24K gold leaf with centuries old Byzantine techniques and secrets of the renaissance master painters, from Duccio and Giotto to Simone Martini and Fra Angelico. Specific images have been selected to paint for this project that each student will be able to learn the most techniques from. Including painting the face, garments, decorative gilded backgrounds and applying 24K gold leaf. The workshop is planned that each student will be able to complete a finished painting. Additionally, Dacia Gallery will host a group exhibition of your artwork created during the program, including a reception and artist talk to the public. Your time is meant to be productive, illuminating and memorable.

Invitation to Artists: The Byzantium to the Renaissance Workshop is open to all visual artists, from the beginner, who is seeking to develop basic skills, to the advanced artist who may be interested in insights into the instructor’s approach and practices. National and international artists are invited to attend, including anyone interested in learning more about Medieval and Byzantine art. This is an unique painting technique that was primarily used during the renaissance and previous centuries. It has a wide array of applications to contemporary artists, by learning these ancient techniques to create some visually stunning paintings that are not seen today. If you are interested in participating register today.

Making Your Own Tempera Paint: During the workshop students will learn to make their own egg tempera paints from scratch. By learning the properties and chemistry of pigments, grinding and mixing pigments, applying the egg yolk with distilled water and white wine as a binder, you will make your own paint just like the old masters. No modern store bought paints will equal the vibrancy, beauty and quality of the paints you will learn to make yourself.

Water Gilding 24K Gold Leaf: During the workshop students will learn how to achieve a mirror finish shine to their gold leafed paintings. The process is called Water Gilding, it requires a marble gessoed background on a wood panel on which you apply red clay bole mixed with rabbit skin glue. The clay bole dries, is sanded and polished with an agate stone burnisher. Then solution of distilled water and denatured alcohol is applied on top and the 24K Gold Leaf is placed on the wet areas, it will immediately stick to the bole. Once dried the gold leaf is burnished to a mirror like, perfect finish. Water Gilding is a unique process used by the masters that gives a beautiful finish to backgrounds or to decorative elements in paintings. You will be amazed at the possibilities of the work you can create once you learn how to properly water gild with gold.

Instructor: Lee Vasu is an Artist, Iconographer, Curator and the Founder of Dacia Gallery in New York City. His passion for art enabled him to curate exhibitions nationally and internationally, which inspired him to establish Dacia Gallery in New York City.

Photo Construct

City:

We are inviting 10 photographers to join us for 10 day workshop from 15th to 25th June 2019; living and working from our modest studio/house in Leh. We are looking for passionate people who use photography as a medium or a message for expression. We will be working closely with each participant in converting an artist concept into physical printed photobook. The workshop will start from the initial concept of converting it into a photo narrative, book designing and finally conclude into a printed photobook/Zine. The photographers can come with an empty palate and create works in Leh to make the photobook or come with an already existing body of photographic works. We are also interested in exploring work around 'found images'.We will help not only in the creative process, but also provide inputs like InDesign feedbacks, book-binding etc. The photographic works can be conceptual or documentary. We also highly encourage converting literature to visual narrative by means of a photo-book.

We will put the participants in 'provocative' areas of social, cultural and political spectrums, to find interesting voices from the cameras. The works can be conceptual or documentary. We will visit very interesting sites of traditional Buddhist art in Ladakh-Saspol & Alchi.
