Ekphrastic Poetry Workshop with Jodie Hollander
February 24 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Experience art at a new level and use it to inspire your writing.

Students will study examples of celebrated poems that respond to or were inspired by art. Then students will be led through a variety of writing activities inspired by the art, ultimately leading to a draft of an original poem. Students will discuss poetic techniques such as the use of vivid imagery, the importance of sonics, how to shape a poetic line as well as techniques for drafting and revision. No experience necessary.
