The worlds of photography and fiction will collide this weekend during an interactive writing workshop to be held at Donkey Coffee.

The class is based on the coffee shop’s current photo exhibit, Stairs and Chairs: The Ups and Downs of Life, by Athens resident Trisha Lachman, who will be leading the session.

“This photo collection has been three years in the making and is drawn from many locations around the country,” explained Lachman. “The interactive idea is to ask writers to view the 28 Stairs and Chairs photographs and then choose one image to write about during the first hour.”

Lachman added that, during the second hour, anyone is welcome to read an original piece, be it poetry, an essay or memoir, or they can just choose to listen.

“I anticipate some rich and varied writings from this sort of interactive experience,” she said.

The writing workshop is being offered Saturday, Aug. 31 from 4-6 p.m. in Donkey Coffee’s back room. Everyone is welcome, regardless of age or experience.
