Mind to Mind, Heart to Heart: An Ekphrastic Poetry Workshop

November 5

$200

Moving beyond description of the artistic subject, the best art-inspired poems activate emotional and intellectual inquiry. In this class, you’ll explore posted images and virtual museums to write ekphrastic poems that capture the essence of the artistic source while contributing your unique style and conceptual signature. You will find and engage with artworks that have not yet been poetically depicted, as well as writing your own contributions to the literary corpus for artworks frequently featured in ekphrastic poetry.

Dates: Nov 5–Dec 3, Online.
Cost: Member $170; Non-Member $200
Availability: 8 Students

Class closed
