Fall Line Press is excited to offer our third annual workshop for artists and writers pursuing deep photographic projects with an eye towards publication. Our photography mentors this year are Jill Frank and Clay Jordan (bios below). Find inspiration in the land of Alice Walker, Flannery O’Connor and Joel Chandler Harris, in historic East Central Georgia.
On Saturday, Jill and Clay will mentor photographers on a full day shoot in Sparta, GA with models who have agreed to work with the group. Workshop mentors will be available for discussion and feedback as the day progresses. In the evening, participants will gather for a bbq dinner at 3 Cent Farm where they will share and discuss their images and be given further guidance.
The half-day publication workshop on Sunday with Fall Line’s publisher, writer and artist, William Boling, will be held at 3 Cent Farm. Guest teachers will lead a small group of participants through a discussion of effective approaches to sharing art and writing through publishing. Consideration will be given to artist books, self-published art and photo books, independent presses, as well as zines and other non-traditional forms of publishing. Both the practical nuts and bolts of the process as well as the creative side will be considered.
