ATG Quirkies: How Photographing a Dumb Paper Bag Led to Writing a Novel

by | Jun 29, 2020 | 0 comments

In this post appearing on Literary Hub, Anna Cox makes a stark admission: Everything I needed to know about writing and editing a novel I learned by photographing a dumb brown bag.”

Ms. Cox both teaches photography and also writes, but she doesn’t separate the two disciplines. She sees striking similarities between photography and writing that many of us rarely think about. But she does.

According to Ms. Cox “both are make-believe processes that can remake norms and shift beliefs… ” “What matters, in fiction and photography, is how you see and what you do with what you’ve seen.” What does all this have to do with the brown paper bag she has taped to the wall above her desk? And how did it help lead to her to writing her novel?

Obviously you’ll have to read the article to find out.
