Poetry Workshop with Jodie Hollander (cancelled)

Responding Poetically to “A Culture Preserved”- This Workshop has been Cancelled 

Experience art at a new level and use it to inspire your writing. Poet Jodie Hollander teaches this workshop, in which participants respond poetically to the current exhibition, “A Culture Preserved.” 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, 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.
