Join poet and artist Mackie Garrett for an online workshop series on the art and practice of keeping a notebook. We will take a look at creative work by artists and writers who have made a place in their practice for writing, drawing, collaging, etc in a notebook. Our online meet ups will include some discussion of the potential benefits and limits of notebooking in our time, as well as the ways this seemingly simple approach can support and maintain our creative process. Each participant will receive a handmade notebook that will include prints from the Iowa City Press Cooperative’s lovely scrap bin. Mackie will provide writing and drawing prompts, encouragement, and constructive feedback on starting and maintaining a notebook practice. Artists and writers of all kinds and experience levels are welcome.

Registration deadline: Oct. 21

*PS1 workshops are pay-what-you-can thanks to a generous grant from Kum & Go. $100 is the true cost of the workshop, and we encourage participants to select the cost that they can afford.
