AWP Panel in Los Angeles: Seeing There - The Intersection of Visual and Literary Art

  • Los Angeles Convention Center 1201 South Figueroa Street Los Angeles, CA, 90015 United States (map)

With Beowulf Sheehan,  Jeff Sharlet,  Timothy Taranto,  and Nomi Victor.

From a book cover or author portrait to comics, photo essays, and accompanying illustrations, writers are constantly confronted with how visual imagery compliments or complicates the written word. How can images be crafted that contribute to poetry and prose? Can an image ever take the place of language? What role does design and photography play within contemporary publishing? This panel examines how images and text cohere to create a product that is arresting for both reader and writer.
