Art urges us to look more closely at the world around us, and at ourselves. In and around Boston, there’s an ever changing gallery of portraits and messages from local artists. In this generative writing workshop, participants will choose an image to have a “conversation” with. Each writer will be given prompts and questions in order to interact with their image. After having this dialogue with art, writers can pick eight of their favorite lines and arrange them into a working draft of an ekphrastic poem, to share with each other and the community.
For writers age 13 - 18 ONLY.
