An Ekphrastic Assortment

Explore the possibilities of art-inspired poetry for two days in September as poet Daemond Arrindell conducts “An Ekphrastic Assortment” at Confluence Gallery in Twisp, Washington (“the heart of the Methow Valley”). The workshop, September 26 and 27, 2015, 9:30am to 12:30pm, will use “the current exhibit in the gallery to influence our writing and as jumping off points for engaging several different forms including found poems, persona, anaphora, structured free verse, and more.” There will be a participant reading at Confluence Gallery on Sunday, September 27, at 4:00pm.

Seattle poet and performer Daemond Arrindell is on the faculty of the Washington State Teaching Artist Training (TAT) Lab, Cornish College of the Arts and Freehold Theatre, and is Writer in Residence for the Skagit River Poetry Foundation and the Seattle Arts & Lectures Writers In The Schools program. He was a 2013 Jack Straw Writer, a 2014 VONA/Voices Writer’s Workshop fellow and has performed nationwide.
