Writing & Literary Narratives

Literature and photography, the verbal and the visual, words and light… they were destined to be together.

This mentorship program is designed to help you master your writing skills; something that is fundamental for all photographers that want to pitch a story, apply for grants and competitions or expand on the nuances of their body of work, imbuing it with the sophistication of different readings in order to guide their audience even further into their stories.

As each storyteller’s needs are different, I have created two different mentorship options that will be further adapted according to the needs and objectives of the photographer. 

MENTORISHIP OPTION 1

Visual Storytelling Crash Course

Get the basics of literary writing theory and 1-on-1 reviews taught during on-site workshops but remotely.

Personalized time with Kayla to focus on fusing writing and photography into a visual, literary narrative.

Come away with a better understanding of the process of creating a visual story and how you can apply it to projects big or small, for publishing or for personal keepsakes

DURATION

6 Months: 3 lessons and 3 reviews (one-hour sessions)

PRICE

Members: 675€

Non-members: 750€

MENTORISHIP OPTION 2

Project Edit

An intensive edit for a project you are starting or already working on.

Kayla will help lead you through your project to maximize its value and impact.

Come away with a completed Zine, book, award submission, Substack, etc., for personal or public audience, that is in your own words but vetted by a professional editor.

DURATION

3 weeks up to 4 months ( based on project needs and deadlines): 1 pre-edit consult via Zoom, 1 edit via Google Docs, 1 edit review via Zoom/Google Docs, 1 finalizing edit via Google Docs (includes discussion/commenting).

PRICE

Members: 450€

Non-members: 500€

For both mentorship options: a personal calendar will be created for you in which you’ll be able to select the times and days that best suit you.
