EKPHRASIS: USING VISUAL ART AND PHOTOS AS PROMPTS FOR POETRY AND PROSE
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no class on September 18 due to a conflict with Tiferet’s online spiritual poetry reading.
Saturdays from 1-2:30 pm EST
Fiction and poetry based on visual art is called ekphrastic writing. It’s found in works as diverse as Girl with a Pearl Earring, A Piece of the World, Moby Dick, and Ode on a Grecian Urn. In this workshop you’ll see examples of ekphrastic writing … discover for yourself how to find these magic, idea-generating works of art… write using visual prompts … and share your work.
Join us for a new 3-week series beginning September 11, 2021.
Workshop fee is $90. Open to ages 16 and up.
