Ekphrastic Poetry Workshop
Deepen your experience of art and use it to inspire your writing. Students will learn about poetry inspired by art, explore vivid imagery, sonics, and revision techniques, and draft an original poem of their own. Internationally known poet Jodie Hollander teaches this workshop and will draw on current exhibits in the galleries at BIMA. No experience necessary.
