Ekphrastic poetry focuses on works of art. In this workshop, participants will learn about ekphrastic poetry and writing techniques, explore examples of ekphrasis, and visit the Harwood galleries in order to use works of art to write their own ekphrastic poems. Sessions will include lecture, discussion, writing exercises, and instruction on using ekphrasis to generate new work. Participants will workshop the poems they write in class, receiving constructive criticm and feedback on their work.
