ONLINE WORKSHOP — Words and Images: Ekphrastic Writing


Are you a writer with a strong interest in visual art? Or, are you an artist wanting to enrich your connection with writing?

Learn about ekphrastic writing: writing about another art form; for example, music, dance, or painting. The writing may describe the work, but, more importantly, it seeks to enrich it. Participants will write about some selected pieces of art using varying approaches in different exercises. Once familiar with these approaches, participants will write about a favorite piece of art, their own creation, or someone else’s work. Both writers and artists will benefit, as this workshop encourages taking a fresh look at one's usual creative outlet.
