About the event
This workshop will examine myriad ways in which poetry can engage with and respond to art, in its broadest sense, asking questions about what a poet has to gain by being in dialogue with other artists, whether living or dead, and how such dialogue, even when pictorial or descriptive, can still reflect concerns about landscape, self, and society. We will explore a variety of texts and will also workshop poems. Please walk with your ekphrastic poems, as well as the materials that inspired them.
