"Whatcha Lookin' At?" A Workshop on Ekphrastic Poetry

In this workshop we will explore visual work through the process of ekphrastic writing—writing inspired by art! We will look at contemporary ekphrastic poets and the art that inspired their work. Then we will draft poems inspired by old photographs, found objects, and contemporary art.
