    Words and Images: On-line Ekphrastic Writing workshop - REGISTER NOW

    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. For this online workshop, participants will write about some selected pieces of art using varying approaches in different writing exercises. Once familiar with these approaches, participants will write about a favorite piece of art, their own creation, or someone else’s work. The Instructor will help the participant deepen and enhance their writing with suggestions. Both writers and artists will benefit, as this workshop encourages taking a fresh look at one's usual creative outlet.
