Ekphrastic State

All Levels | From Robert Frost to Natasha Trethewey, writers have used non-text-based art forms to inspire them for generations. This generative workshop will explore ekphrastic poetry—responding to visual art, music, and dance. Students will generate new work from prompts inspired by non-literary mediums and give and receive feedback from peers.
