EKPHRASIS: USING VISUAL ART AND PHOTOS AS PROMPTS FOR POETRY AND PROSE
Saturdays from 3-4:30 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 1, 3, or all 5 weeks in August.
Workshop fee is $25. Open to ages 16 and up.
This workshop is being offered through The Writers Circle Workshops and will be taught by Donna Baier Stein.
