As part of the continuing Ekphrastic Assimilations project, the Redmond Association of Spokenword (RASP) will present a free, one-evening, four-part Ekphrastic Poetry Writing Workshop, curated by Michael Dylan Welch, with presenting poets Duane Kirby Jensen, J.I. Kleinberg, Jared Leising and Joannie Stangeland. Each of the four poets will introduce one approach to writing poetry in response to artwork. The participants will then have time to view the exhibit and use one (or more) of the suggested techniques to write a poem (or poems) and share their writing (if desired).
The workshops will be held this Friday, October 14, 2016, 6:30-9:00pm, at VALA Eastside Art Center, 7325 166th AVE NE, Redmond, Washington. No advance reservations are required. Just show up with your paper and pen. Should be fun! Please join us.
We have it on good authority that “the exhibit itself is spectacular.” To preview the artworks, visit the Ekphrastic Assimilations website and click on the images.
