Contemporary Ekphrasis

$65.00 Members
$75.00 Non-members

The strong historical current of ekphrastic poetry runs directly into our time of elliptical, documentary, lyrical, narrative, post-avant, etc., poetry trajectories. What contemporary examples are particularly effective? What hasn’t worked so well? We’ll create multiple versions of an ekphrastic poem in various styles. Please bring an image of a work you would like to write about. And bring an open mind about trying different kinds of writing than those that might, at first, feel most natural and familiar.
