Ekphrasis, from the Greek, means description or interpretation. Join Literary Cleveland and poet Lee Chilcote for a two-session workshop exploring links between the visual arts and the art of words.

  • Session 1, April 19: Explore and discuss examples of ekphrastic poems, and visit the galleries for prompts and writing exercises to learn how to use art to inspire your own work.
  • Session 2, May 3: Between sessions, work on a new poem using what you’ve learned. Bring your poem to the second session to workshop it with the group.
