Ekphrastic Poetry Writing Workshop (Part 1) at Carnegie Museum of Art

April 22 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event

As part of her project, “A Legacy of Voices,” 2022–24 Poet Laureate of Allegheny County, Doralee Brooks, leads this two-part writing workshop. Doralee is accompanied by Christine Aikens Wolfe, who will help encourage participants to try this writing practice and learn how to critique and improve their writing. The workshop focuses on the practice of ekphrasis, a literary device accomplished through detailed descriptions of visual art. The first part of the workshop takes place at the Carnegie Museum of Art, where participants will be able to use the exhibits to inspire their ekphrastic pieces. Participants will meet at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (Main Location) in the South Wing Reading Room before walking to the gallery.

This workshop is presented in partnership with Carnegie Museum of Art and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. Participants should bring their own writing materials. This workshop will be completely in person.
