Vision and Voice

Vision and Voice is an ekphrastic writing workshop with Cindy Beer-Fouhy which will examine the literal translation of “A picture is worth a thousand words.” We will explore connections between writing and visual art as conceived by a diverse assortment of poets and writers, including: W.H. Auden, Adrienne Rich, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Sylvia Plath, Rita Dove, and the Writing the Walls II participants.
Participants in the workshop will have the opportunity, through poetry, fiction, memoir and/or personal narratives, to express their unique response to and understanding of the art of WORD.
Coffee/Tea provided, bring lunch and/or snack.
