online event; only open to Mentees & Mentors in Publishing 360
Images and text have a long history of co-mingling. From children’s storybooks to music videos to YouTube and TikTok videos, the two media make a great team to communicate visceral stories.
In this workshop, Emma Fierberg will help you explore how to create imagery that brings nuance to the written or spoken word. Through her education in photojournalism and her professional background in digital video production, you’ll learn how to best marry word and image to convey precise emotions.
