What does this hard
to pronounce word mean? Ekphrasis is a "literary description of or
commentary on a visual work of art." Join Kelli Russell Agodon,
award-winning poet, author, and editor, to learn what ekphrastic poetry is and
how to write it. Kelli will take us a step beyond conversation and into some
poetry writing exercises. Please join us for this
supportive poetry session to learn more and write poems of your own!
All levels of writers and poets welcome.
