Writing in the Galleries

Thursday, February 16, 2023
5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Writers of all levels are invited to participate in this informal exploration of the Museum’s galleries as an impetus to writing. Monthly sessions are led by a visiting writer who begins with a conversation and prompt, partially inspired by works on view. Participants write on their own, then reconvene to share and comment on each other’s work. Please bring something on which to write.

In February writer, SBCC professor, and current poet Laureate of Santa Barbara Emma Trelles leads the session.
