Residency Statement

We will put the “play” back into poetry. And politics. And passion.  All three will be dangerous – but we're after the truth in its purest form, and sometimes it's not on the surface, it has to be dredged up or teased out or toyed with. Mornings we'll make poems, weekday afternoons from 2-4 PM we'll experiment in our “lab” – except for Thursdays, when we'll have individual conferences for poets to bring in poems not generated during our afternoon sessions. In addition to rethinking or consolidating work, we will read and talk about timely essays, and review the writing of other provocative poets. “The sources of poetry are in the spirit seeking completeness” – Muriel Rukeyser.

Application Requirements

Please submit your best five poems, publication history, your instruction in poetry, and a statement describing what you hope to accomplish during this residency (.doc, .docx, .pdf)

Identity and Narrative Photography with Linda Troeller

Residency Statement

In this workshop, we will explore personal ways of visual storytelling. You will develop your narrative photography by focusing on things you are truly devoted to, that are in-tune with your identity.

Through self-portraiture and portraits of colleagues you will ‘open up’ your sensitivity to enhance your vision. We will critique/discuss six jpgs from each persons’ recent project or valued images you will bring.

The second week’s theme is on ‘place’ in our rapidly changing contemporary life. What is intimate space? communal space? global space? At this point, each person commits to shoot their unique point of view. My assignments will accelerate techniques, and group photo walks will result in expressive, atmospheric images.

During the final week, we will go through the editing phase - the hardest area for many photographers to master. One-on-one meetings narrow shoots into compelling ’stories’.

Throughout the workshop, we will look at and discuss photo books you brought with you. We may also listen to music for inspiration.

Requirements to bring:

1.                 Digital camera you are acquainted with

2.                 Computer with photo editing software like iPhoto or similar

3.                 Items that refer to or can be used to alter identity (3 objects) such as wig, clothes, dolls, toys, amulet, hairbrush, historic/ vintage picture, body harness, …

4.                 Photo book that inspires you

If you have any questions or problems submitting, visit the ACA's 

Application Requirements: (materials to submit for review)

1.                 Name one photographer that inspires you. Share your evolution in your photography to this point. (.doc, .docx, .pdf)

2.                 Bio or CV (.doc, .docx, .pdf)

3.                 A link to a website to view your work (if you have one) (.doc, .docx, .pdf)

4.                  6 jpgs of recent photographs (no more than 10 mb each)
