Ekphrasis Prose and Poetry Workshop with John Brantingham
Ekphrasis, work written about or in reaction to the visual arts, is an old form that has gained popularity in the last ten years or so.
In Ekphrastic Prose and Poetry with John Brantingham, you will write poetry and prose about Adam Cooley’s exhbition Boro Land, Layered Worlds.

We will be working with prose poetry, formal poetry, and free verse along with short stories, vignettes, and nonfiction.
