Let's Get Ekphrastic!

Suffer from the winter blahs? Time to go ekphrastic!

What's ekphrasis?

It's the interpretation of one art form to another. Ekphrasis is probably most common in music. A composer watches a film and writes the musical score--the story she hears as she watches the film. In Becky Sernett's Ekphrastic Writing workshop that begins Saturday, March 6 (2:00 - 4:00 p.m., and runs for 4 weeks), writers will get the chance to translate the stories they see and hear in visual and musical art into words. The first class will meet at the Downtown Writer's Center, and future classes will make excursions to local art galleries.

There's still room to register, so sign up now!
