Feb 14: Ekphrastic poetry
Art is often a collaborative activity, and part of an ongoing conversation. Ekphrastic poetry, where poems riff off other art forms, will be the focus of this workshop. We'll look at several poems that respond to famous paintings (and paintings that respond to poems). We'll write our own poems in this session, so feel free to bring material you'd like to respond to!
Feb 28: Sonnets
Traditional sonnets, modern sonnets.
We'll look at several styles of the sonnet, in English, and attempt our own 14-line wonders.
Mar 28: Poetry workshop
Have you been working on poems in your spare time? Did you write a fantastic ekphrastic poem or sonnet? Are you a non-major with no workshop access? We'll provide feedback for you! In this workshop we'll have time for 1-2 poems. Sign up a week or more in advance so we can trade poems and ready our responses for the meeting on the 28.
