Course Description

This new creative writing course will explore writing inspired by the visual arts. Ekphrastic
poetry has come to be defined as poems written about or inspired by works of art. The Greek
term ekphrasis was applied to the skill of describing a thing in vivid detail. In this class we will
write to a selection of visuals including painting, photography, and sculpture. Each class will
also include examples of Ekphrastic writing, prompts, time to write and share your work in a
safe and supportive environment. All genres & levels welcome!
