Ekphrastic Poetry Workshop with Jodie Hollander

Experience art at a new level and use it to inspire your writing.

Poet Jodie Hollander teaches this ekphrastic poetry workshop at the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art, in which participants will respond poetically to exhibitions at the museum. Workshop students will study examples of celebrated poems that respond to or were inspired by art. Then students will be led through a variety of writing activities inspired by art at the museum, ultimately leading to a draft of an original poem. Participants will discuss poetic techniques such as the use of vivid imagery, the importance of sonics, how to shape a poetic line, as well as techniques for drafting and revision. 


This workshop is free and open to the public, but we ask for reservations as space is limited.

(registration closes 1 hour before the workshop
